Plastic thermoforming is a process by which a wide variety of products and packaging can be created. Plastic thermoforming can be used to create large products such as plastic lawn chairs or small items such as the thermoform trays that protect crackers in retail food packaging.
At Indepak, we specialize in thin-gauge plastic thermoforming. There are two basic types of thermoforming – thin gauge and thick gauge. Our high-quality, high-speed equipment can thermoform a variety of rigid materials from .008-inch thickness to .080-inch thickness. When it comes to thermoform foam, our equipment processes foam materials from 1/16 inch to ¼ inch.
In order to provide many sizes of thin-gauge plastic thermoforming, we have a variety of thermoforming equipment. It is our goal to provide the best possible solutions to our customers, whether they need plastic thermoform packaging, a thermoform foam product or any product created using plastic thermoforming.
Our machinery can process many different types of thermoplastic, and this includes high-impact polystyrene or HIPS, as well as high-density polyethylene or HDPE, In addition, we also can create a product or package using PP, PVC, ABS, PETG and PET. HDPE and PET are two of the most recyclable thermoplastics, although most thermoplastics can be recycled. We can even create plastic thermoform packaging and products using starch-based bio materials. It all depends on what you need for your specific product. We are a low-waste operation, as well, and do our best to create designs that limit thermoplastic waste as much as possible. We are committed to minimizing our impact on the environment and have won environmental awards from our city, including the Gresham Great Recycler award.
At Indepak, we believe in providing a total solution for our clients needing plastic thermoforming. You might expect that we have an experienced design team and provide you with excellent prototypes and a top quality finished product, but we provide more than design and production. For instance, we offer package fulfillment services and can seal your package together using techniques such as heat sealing and RF welding.
We also can help with inventory management, and we have 50,000 square feet of space available to store our customers’ packaging or products. We can create an inventory management system that truly helps to streamline your operation.
