Custom thermoforming

Plastics Thermoforming

Plastics thermoforming is the process in which plastic sheet is fed through a machine that heats, forms, and die-cuts in-line to produce thermoformed parts and packaging.

Dordan has been thermoforming custom plastic packaging for 55-years. Family-owned and operated, we are a full-service thermoformer, offering all design, tooling, and production in-house. We have 11 in-line plastics thermoforming machines that have the capacity to convert 75-million pounds of material annually.

Dordan Thermoforming Capabilities:

  • Dordan has 11 in-line thin-gauge thermoforming machines that have the capacity to convert 75 million pounds of plastic material annually.

  • We have small and large format thermoformers depending on the requirements of the part and production volumes. These two sizes allow for production flexibility as we are able to use any small tool on any small format machine and any large tool on any large format machine. This scheduling flexibility results in shorter lead times and right-sized tooling, which equates to right-priced thermoformed parts and packaging. 

  • Dordan is a full service thermoform designer and manufacturer. Because we have control over both the design and production of the thermoformed product, quality control is about monitoring our production process. Should there be an issue of production part non-conformity, we are quick to isolate the issue and eradicate. 

  • We are ISO 9001:2008 certified for the design, manufacture and distribution of thermoformed products and packaging, which allows us to measure the quality of our plastics thermoforming.

  • Dordan can produce thermoformed parts up to 30" x 38" x 5.5" and between 0.010"- 0.080" thick.
