Question of the Day: #VacuumFormation ... What is it and which industries commonly use this process?

Vacuum formation is a type of #thermoforming  involving the heating, moulding and shaping of sheet plastics. Instead of using traditional thermoplastic processes with powder or granulate, we work with extruded plastic sheeting to ensure you receive a custom order specific to your business requirements.

Automotive and aircraft are a couple of industries where this unique plastic moulding process is used.

Here at #APHollings  we use only the finest vacuum formation materials to handcraft plastic products in popular demand. If there's a technical aspect you need some clarification on, feel free to ask us anything about our products and services. Our friendly team can provide your business with valuable information by email or over the phone.

When the time comes for your business to branch out its product range, it can be difficult to know where to turn for help.

Whether you work in the #automotive  industry, with aircraft or within another transportation niche, here at #APHollings  it's our priority to make sure your prototypes are in efficient working order, and fit for public use.

Our team has worked on a broad spectrum of previous projects, and we are very proud of every completed project. One of the most rewarding contracts we have worked on was the design and development of transport pods for #HeathrowAirportTerminal5 .

Here you'll be able to glean insight into what this exciting project entailed, as well as the finished result:

Here at #APHollings we offer a variety of bespoke #engineeringservices to our valued clients, including businesses from the automotive industry.

One of our most popular services is #RIM and #PUMoulding  which involves moulds being crafted from either aluminium or epoxy resin.

When determining which of these two materials should be used, keep in mind that this largely depends on the required lifespan of your mould, and the complexity of the component to be moulded.

For instance, a large #productionorder of 10,000 mouldings or more will require aluminium moulds as these are cost effective, and cost considerably less than injection moulding tools.

If you would like to find out further info on RIM moulding or to place an order, call us today and we'll be happy to share our expertise:

At #TeamAPHollings  it's always a pleasure to be able to work with a wide variety of clients, and every order is completely unique.

So when we were approached by #GreevesMotorcycles  to create a fairing component prototype, naturally we couldn't wait to get to work on their order.

Our team interacted closely with this reputable motocycle company to ensure specifications were precise for the exact product they were looking for.

The project was a complete success and after the client saw the #vacuumformedshell  we created, this resulting in them placing a full production order. All in all, another satisfied customer. :)
