Tooling for Vacuum Forming
One of the main reasons for founding Axiom was to manufacture tooling for vacuum Forming. Our recent credentials include the manufacture of tooling for the iconic new Land Rover Defender.
Our expertise lies in the design and manufacture of vacuum form tooling; from low volume sample tools and boards through to aluminium tooling which can be temperature controlled as well as semi-automated tooling.
We have successfully completed many tools for the vacuum forming industry and we work closely with a small number of highly experienced vacuum formers in the UK.
This area of our business is complemented by the Jig, Fixture and Manufacturing Aids part of our business as we are often providing additional products like trim fixture and assembly jigs to support our customer’s manufacturing.
We have completed a number of projects which have included injection moulded tooling to make mouldings which we have then bonded to the rear of a vacuum formed component manufactured by one of our customers.
This is a great example of an aluminium vacuum forming tool being machined on our Haas VF9 CNC machine.
Our customer required us to both design and manufacture the tool which will be used in the automotive sector. Find out about our wide range of services and capabilities here.
Another example of our vacuum forming services include this build to print order for a very innovative helmet design. Our in-house skilled machinists used the client’s design to produce the precision tooling required for the helmet.
