The thermal efficiency and durability of aluminum make it the material of choice for production of thermoforming tools. The nature of thermoforming, combined with the longevity of the aluminum tool, can yield an unlimited number of production parts. Aluminum tools with adequate temperature control produce parts efficiently, with dimensional stability and repeatable appearance from run to run.
Tru-Form constructs our machined aluminum thermoforming tools in-house to provide economic advantages and reduce lead times for tool completion. In-house toolmaking provides control during this crucial stage of the product development cycle.
We maintain a complete pattern shop for making prototype parts and tooling, along with trim fixtures for projects requiring five-axis trimming operations. Our engineers are experts at explaining the tradeoffs between temporary tooling and metal production tooling for your application.
