VACUUM FORMING AND THERMOFORMING
In need of an efficient and cost-effective method of creating prototypes? Choose Systematic Automation for vacuum forming and thermoforming excellence.
Our vacuum tables are an essential component in achieving industry-standard quality. For more than 30 years, Systematic Automation has been a trusted supplier of vacuum tables to the thermoforming industry, providing precision flatness that is unmatched. Our vacuum tables offer flatness within +/-.001″, ensuring that your molds for components are incredibly precise.
There are two methods of thermoforming: vacuum forming and pressure forming. Vacuum forming involves heating a plastic sheet until it is pliable and then pressing it against a 3D mold by vacuuming the air between the sheet and the mold. This process allows for sharper details and molded texture.
Pressure forming, on the other hand, applies air above the plastic sheet at the end of the process, allowing you to create complex shapes with tight tolerances. Both vacuum forming and pressure forming can benefit from the precision flatness of our vacuum tables, making them an essential tool for any thermoforming operation.
In need of custom options? We are so committed to customer satisfaction that we also offer customization using your exact specifications, including size and hole patterns, making them ideal for vacuum forming and thermoforming applications.
Systematic Automation super precision vacuum tables provide a flatness of +/-.001″ (.025mm) per linear foot, making it the flattest vacuum table available. Additionally, we provide an array of features and customizable options to complement the vacuum table for your vacuum forming and thermoforming operations, such as:
