Here at Cary Products, we offer custom thermoforming. When a lower tooling cost and production volume solution is needed, thermoforming may fit your needs.
Thermoforming is a process in which a flat sheet of thermoplastic material is heated until soft, draped over a mold where a vacuum is applied tightly pull the material against the mold to form a part. The key advantages to thermoforming are lower tooling costs and quicker turnaround time. This process is ideal for large parts, prototyping, R & D and can also be excellent for long-term, low volume production.
We are equipped 4 thermoforming machines to meet your production and prototyping needs. These machines feature some of the latest technology to provide faster cycle times, more consistency, and even part thickness, equating to lower costs and a higher quality products.
Our machines can accommodate sheet sizes from 24″ x 24″ up to 48″ x 96″ and thickness up to 0.250.
5 Axis CNC Router
Do you need routing done or custom molds built? Our 5-axis CNC routing can do the routing required on a product or tool. Cary Products is a full-service production facility offering CNC service in addition to plastics manutfacturing.
CNC machining can aid in every step of the production process, whether producing part directly, making prototyped, finishing parts, or making tools for other production processes. We hace a 5-axis CNC (computer numerical control) routing the machine with an 8′ x 5′ table as well as a 3-axis router, also with an 8′ x 5′ table. We also have another smaller 5-axis router (5′ x 5′) that can cut aluminum.
There are four main benefits with this machine:
- More complex cuts can be taken, reducing or eliminating the need for hand finishing.
- Since the bed can reposition the part, fewer setups are required to complete complex designs.
- The added range of motion allows shorter cutting tools to be used, reducing vibrations and increasing cutting speeds.
- Operations that would need to be completed on multiple machines can be finished at one CNC center. That means the part can stay in the same position relative to the tooling during the entire cutting process.
