After a sheet of plastic is thermoformed, the next step is to trim the excess material away from the part. Thermoformed parts can be trimmed using steel rule dies.
Able to cut thermoformed parts up to 0.500″ draw depth, steel rule dies provide speed and consistency in cutting registration. Dies are generally low in cost and easily repairable.
To build a trim tool die, please provide a formed part and an Adobe Illustrator, DXF or PDF file. The tooling we most commonly produce for this type of process are made for trimming one formed part at a time. This produces the most accurate registration.
