Vacuum Thermoformed ABS Protective Cover for the Electric Industry

As an industry leading fabricator of plastic and composite parts, many customers take advantage of our vacuum thermoforming capabilities. When used in combination with our diverse range of additional services, we are able to supply customers with fully formed components ready for the next phase on their manufacturing line.

We produced the protective cover shown here for a customer in the electric industry. Working with customer supplied CAD files, our team of expert tool makers created the molds for forming heavy gauge black ABS plastic sheet into the desired geometry. Secondary operations consisted of part marking, drilling additional features, routing the edges, and deburring to remove trace particulate. We produced 23 of these covers, and stringent quality controls ensured that we met the ± 0.015” tolerance requirement.
