Thermoformed EnclosuresCustom thermoformed large enclosures, bezels, housings, and panels that feature the “look” of injection molded parts at a fraction of their cost are available. Thermoformed Enclosures for medical instruments and high value equipment combine thermo- and pressure forming to create highly detailed features including logos, lettering, openings, and textures. Fabricated in sizes up to 5 x 8 ft. in solid, smoked, or translucent colors, they achieve the aesthetics of injection molded parts for a fraction of their cost. Made from ABS, PETG, PVC, and other extrudable thermoplastics in material thicknesses to 1/2”, Thermoformed Enclosures feature tolerances to ±0.020” on length, width, height, and openings, with molded features down to 0.010”; depending upon size and configuration. Secondary operations can include metal inserts, hardware, machining, painting, assembly, and more. Mayfield Thermoformed Enclosures are priced according to material, configuration, and quantity. Tooling costs one-fifth that of injection molding, claims the firm.
