Salient Designs, a division of SportChassis LLC, has provided high quality thermoforming services for the automotive, truck, HVAC, aerospace, marine and residential industries since its founding in 1999. We specialize in manufacturing specialized interior and exterior thermoformed products to exact specficiations.
Thermoforming is used to manufacture large plastic parts. With a shorter lead time and more flexible tooling designs than injection molding, thermoforming is a cost-effective method to manufacture precision parts. Thermoforming offers close tolerances, tight specifications, and sharp details. The process involves heating a flat sheet of thermoplastic material until it softens and is stretchable. The hot sheet is then stretched over and forced against the contours of the mold by removing air from the area between the mold and the sheet, typically by vacuum process. After cooling, the plastic sheet retains the mold shape and detail. The formed part is then trimmed from the sheet.
