Vacuum Thermoforming Services From Indepak
Through the process of vacuum thermoforming, we can create virtually any type of package or product that you might need. This versatile production process allows us to take a thin sheet of plastic and transform it into something useful and functional.
Over the years, we’ve worked with clients from many specialized markets, including the following:
Retail: Just about every product needs a package, and we can create clamshells, blisters, trap blisters, thermoform trays and more to display and protect your product. No matter what type of product you sell, we can create a package that suits your needs and stays within your budget.
Electronics: We have long been an industry leader in the production of thermoformed electronics packaging. Our materials, ranging from dissipative to conductive, ensure that your static-sensitive products are well protected.
Specialty Foods: Our design and production teams have extensive experience crafting custom packaging for specialty foods companies. This includes creating all types of clamshells as well as tubs, lids and a variety of thermoform trays. Of course, all our materials and processes comply with GMP for direct food contact packaging.
Agriculture: For our agricultural clients, we often create custom thermoform trays as well as other types of packaging. You might need custom tubs to hold fruits and vegetables, custom pots, mesh trays, seed trays or perhaps planting trays and we can provide all of this and more.
Medical/Pharmaceutical: For our medical and pharmaceutical clients, we produce low particulate packaging, intended for non-sterile or downstream sterilization. The versatility of vacuum thermoforming allows us to create packaging with multiple cavities to hold medical supplies and medicines of all sizes and shapes.
Industrial: Whether you work for a high-tech firm or in another type of industry, through vacuum thermoforming, we can produce internal and business-to-business tote trays used for a variety of applications, including automation applications.

Virtually all of the production materials we use are recyclable, and these materials are compliant with regulations such as EICC, REACH and RoHS. We also offer many eco-friendly options, such as post-consumer grade materials and some starch-based bioplastics. Additionally, we can craft combination designs such as trap-blisters or other packages that include a mix of plastic, paper and pulp.
