Vacuum Formed Trays:
From food packaging to life-saving medical devices, vacuum-formed trays have reshaped our manufacturing processes. Vacuum forming is a manufacturing method used to shape plastic materials. It is a twin sheet forming method that works by heating up plastic and using suction to mold it to the shape of a particular object. This process results in a custom fit to ensure your packaging is secure.
Ameripak designs and manufactures vacuum and thermoformed plastic trays, clamshells, and blister packs. During our thermoforming process, we use heat, vacuum suction, and pressure forming for aluminum production molds as well as various wood species for prototype molds to design the custom trays in the desired shape.
