We provide the following moulding & forming;
Drape forming - plastic is formed over a single positive mould to create large curved panels for example.
Blow moulding - a process where air is forced through a former stretching the plastic into shape. An example of this is a dome shape.
Press forming - a two part tool (male & female) where the plastic material is press sandwiched inbetween to produce a more intricate design.
