Thermoforming

Design

Sur-Form is able to generate simple conceptual designs for quick density studies or create a complex, fully detailed design. To facilitate CAD data transfer and management, Sur-Form has an ftp website and is able to translate most engineering CAD data files including CATIA, SolidWorks, and Unigraphics.

Sur-Form has the capability and flexibility to design thermoform packaging trays generated from part data CAD, or from a physical part supplied by the customer.

Prototype / Production Tooling

Sur-Form’s in-house 5,000 square foot prototype and production tool facility is staffed with individuals with over 75 years combined experience.

Dunnage Trays

Sur-Form produces a variety of thermoformed trays for shipping automotive and non-automotive products.

Thermoformed trays can be used to package sensitive or precision machined parts that typically require part separation. Sur-Form’s maximum tray size is 72″x120″, with a gauge range between 0.060″ and 0.375″.

Materials can vary from HDPE to standard PE or even ABS depending on the use.

Pallets & Lids

Thermoformed pallet/lid systems typically consist of two primary configurations:

  • A+B: The pack consists of a thermoformed pallet base with separate, unique thermoformed lid.
  • A+A: The pack consists of a thermoformed pallet base that doubles as a lid (mirror image).

Notes:

  • Material is High Density Polyethylene – HDPE
  • Many colors are available
  • All materials are 100% recyclable
  • Sizes above are based on 0.250″ starting gage
  • All pallets and lids have drain holes installed
  • Tolerance is ± 0.250
  • 0.300″ gauge material is recommended for unit loads over 1,500 lbs.
  • Pallets and lids with retractable belts are available and quoted upon request

OEM Products

High tolerance thermoform OEM parts require precise trimming. Sur-Form utilizes a 5-axis, dual table, CNC router for greater accuracy and speed. Your parts are trimmed to exact specifications.
