Forming the Future… Today

About Us

Plastics By Design offer the following processes:

  • Vacuum forming
  • Pressure forming
  • Twin sheet moulding
  • 5 and 3 axis CNC trimming
  • Drape moulding
  • Standard packs
  • Design
  • Tool making
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Plastic Fabrication
  • Silk Screen printing
  • Foil block printing
  • Printing Formed 3D Formings

We manufacture at three different locations across the UK, meaning that we can offer a wide range of services. Furthermore, we have a large variety of plastic thermoforming machines which enables us to produce everything from thin sheet packaging to thick sheet complex components, catering for both large and small volume production.

Materials commonly used are PVC, PET, HIPS, ABS, PP, HDPE, and Polycarbonate, ranging from 200┬Ám to 12mm thick.

We have 30 in line vacuum and pressure forming machines as well as 6 large area vacuum and pressure forming machines. Also, we perform assembly work and adopt the responsibility of project management.

Our consistent high standards are evident from the various awards our design team have obtained, including Gold in the British P.O.P. the Gold G.L.E.E. and a Star pack award.

Using 3D cad work, we can produce a concept design from which we can create rapid prototypes and in turn, a production tool. Most samples and designs can be produced in a matter of days.

At your request we have a design manual available for vacuum forming, pressure forming and twin sheet moulding, detailing our services.
