Vacuum Forming

Vacuum Forming

What Are Vacuum Formed Products?

Vacuum forming is a process where a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto a single-surface mould, and forced against the mould by a vacuum. This process can be used to form plastic into permanent objects such 3D badges and coverings.

How Do We Apply Vacuum Forming?

Rudd Macnamara produce high quality printed and vacuum formed products which can be illuminated where required. Investment in our vacuum forming and printing technology means we can produce the printed 3D shape you're after.

We are also the number one independent manufacturer of bespoke font and front-of-bar branding for the brewery industry where we combine our expertise in vacuum forming and printing for exceptional results.

Printed & Vacuum Formed Products

In particular, we've used our unique innovation in high impact polystyrene polymers to produce exceptionally lightweight and aerodynamic branded wheel discs for the performance cycling industry.

"The discs from the initial production run look fantastic. We’ve had great feedback straight away. I just wanted to say thank you, no-one else in the entire industry has ever managed it!"
