Whatever your vacuum forming or thermoformed packaging needs may be, Global Thermoforming can put engineering, design & manufacturing expertise to work to create the highest quality products for you.
At Global Thermoforming, we build our own thermoforming tools, thermoforming machines and extrude our own material, which means we can design and develop faster, fix production problems faster, and ensure you meet your deadlines.
At Global Thermoforming, we provide a broad array of plastic manufacturing capabilities. Whether your part calls for design, post-production machining, finishing, tooling manufacture, assembly or thermoformed packaging, we can handle all your needs on-site. We’ll make all the components!
At Global Thermoforming, quality is the most important attribute of our thermoforming company. We take great pride in delivering the best quality in the thermoforming industry. We are constantly striving to improve.
Once your product is delivered, we will be by your side until it is fully integrated with your manufacturing processes. If complications occur, we are available within 24 hours to get it right and have your systems up and running.
LET US EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
With over 30 years of experience in vacuum forming, and thermoformed packaging, our plants in Nashville, Tennessee and Tempe, Arizona consistently produce high-quality and distinctive retail packaging, component parts, and POP displays. We offer a full range of concept development to production services for small-run to high-volume vacuum forming projects. Recognized for our close tolerance forming and trimming capabilities, we fulfill your quality requirements in both thin gauge and thick gauge materials at competitive pricing. Although we are a privately-held company, we view our customers as shareholders. Your satisfaction is our primary focus.
Vacuum forming and plastic manufacturing is the most cost effective and quality solution for your manufacturing needs.
We have capabilities of forming up to 1” thick. We’ve formed all types of thermoforming plastics in our industry and have helped our customers form their ideas into solutions they never dreamed of.
Thin gauge thermoforming is primarily the manufacture of disposable cups, containers, lids, trays, blisters, clamshells, and other products for the food, medical, and general retail industries.
In addition to our custom thermoforming services, we provide a variety of secondary services including CNC trimming, assembly, printing, painting, and drape forming.
Rotary thermoforming equipment can introduce even greater productivity in forming operations by arranging three or four workstations around a central area. Rotary machines with five stations are sometimes used but are far less common than three- and four-station machines. Only one mold and one forming station are needed on a rotary machine.
A continuous web of material is fed from a roll and then clamped into a chain conveyor. The web moves through a bank of heaters, gets formed, and is moved out. The part is trimmed during cooling.
Our Thermwood 5-axis CNC Routers are specifically developed for three-dimensional machining and holding tight tolerances. A computer numerical control (CNC) router is a computer-controlled machine that can hold much tighter and more consistent tolerances than held by hand routers.
Here, the sheet is clamped into a movable frame. The frame is located to the side of the stationary heaters. The sheet is then moved into the heater; when it reaches forming temperature, the sheet is moved back to the loading station and pressed into contact with the mold. The part is formed and cooled. The part is ejected after the mold is retracted.
Quality is Global Thermoforming’s most important attribute. We take pride in delivering the best quality thermoforming, vacuum forming, and thermoformed packaging in our industry. We are constantly striving to improve. At Global Thermoforming, quality is everyone’s job!
At Global Thermoforming, we stay involved through the entire process. Once your thermoformed product is delivered, we will be by your side until it is fully integrated with your manufacturing processes. If complications occur, we are available within 24 hours to get it right and have your systems up and running. Our goal is to deliver products with speed, quality, and customer-centric experiences at the forefront. Let us exceed your expectations.
Welcome! We’d like to hear all about your products and the vision you have in mind. We pride ourselves in having a great sales team that will help you throughout the process of your entire project. Our sales team works closely with our production team to make sure we hit our lead times and produce the highest quality parts in our field.
We have state of the art thermoforming machines and equipment! From high speed “inline” thermoforming machines along with 3-station rotary machines that give us high volume capability. Our smaller shuttle thermoforming machines allow for lower volume projects.
Design & Engineering are very important in thermoforming! We take your vision and try to improve it by reducing costs, improving manufacturability, and adding value to your end customer. We have over 50+ years of combined experience on our engineering team.
Because accurate and timely information is vital in any business strategy, we make your priorities are put first! Typical production lead times in our industry can vary from 4 – 10 weeks pending on the particular project.
Rapid Prototyping! As soon as your design is completed and approved, we can get you prototypes in as little as 2 days! Most companies we’ve worked with over the years have found prototyping is vital in the process to launch a new product. We offer a variety of mold options, all depending on your particular project.
The duration from prototype approval to final product delivery varies anywhere from 2-14 weeks, dependent on the scope of work and complexity of the part. No solution is out of reach; your finished product will be beautiful, high quality, and completed with speed and efficiency.
We are excited to officially announce our decision to seek out ISO 9001:2015 certification. Our key purpose in getting certified, is that we want our quality, on-time delivery, and scrap rate percentage to be at the top of our core capabilities. Learn more on what is involved in this certification process!
How does a thermoforming machine work? Each of the machines in our manufacturing facilities works by heating thin plastic sheets and stretching them over a mold to create precise shapes. However, each approaches their task differently. Let’s see how each play their role in our manufacturing process!
Our warehouses feature LED High Efficiency lighting with motion-activated sensors to help with energy consumption, and are heated using our ovens to reduce energy.
Our plastic manufacturing facilities recycle 100% of the recyclable materials. If you need help with recycling plastic waste, please contact us.
We’re also a member of The AZ Green Tier Program.
