The two main areas of plastic moulding are vacuum forming and injection moulding.
Vacuum forming is only suitable for low volume non critical parts, as the finish of the product is of a lower quality than and equivalent injection moulded part.
Furthermore the consistency of the parts in vacuum forming is of a lower quality than injection moulding.
Historically the main advantage of vacuum forming was the lead time for a project with typical injection moulded projects taking 20+ weeks for first off samples, however at A6 Mouldings we have significantly reduced the lead time for a project to generally below 8 weeks for first off samples.
