Lockwood provide a complete thermoforming service from 3D CAD design, prototyping, tooling and manufacture of the formings. With quick turnaround times on prototypes and thermoform tool design/fabrication we can produce a custom quality blister fast, getting your product into the marketplace.
Thermoform Blister Packaging is a cost effective packaging solution that allows your product to be seen, but not touched.
Thermoforming is a method of manufacturing plastic parts by preheating a flat sheet of plastic, and then bringing it into contact with a mould whose shape it takes. This can be done by vacuum, pressure and or direct mechanical force. The process offers close tolerances, tight specifications, and sharp detail available materials inc. APET, RPET, PVC, PETG and other specialised films complementing our blisters, we also manufacture transit & display trays.
This is a cavity formed in plastic which is then sealed to a card with a product in between (Face Seal Blister Pack) or a blister sealed between two cards (Captivated Blister Pack).
A tray is a multi-cavity product Thermoformed from plastic. They have many different functions from stand alone store displays to assembly part carriers.
Trays can be designed with lids, snap devices or stacking features, whichever best fits the functionality of your part or product. These trays are custom designed and engineered for your product. With quick turn around on prototypes, we can produce a custom tray in a very short time to get your product to the stores.
Normal concept to delivery for custom thermoforming:
Concept drawings = 5 business days
Prototype samples = 5 business days/3 business days (if required)
Thermoforming tooling = 20 business days or less
Thermoforming orders = 3-4 week turnaround (depending on plastic deliveries)
Express delivery service available.
Successful packaging operations require more than just good machinery and heat seal tooling, we can supply custom thermoforming’s and thermoform tooling for new projects, or duplicate existing tooling for manual or automatic feeding machines.
All our products and processes meet ISO standards ensuring quality and traceability from start to finish.
