 Dordan Thermoforming Capabilities:

  • Dordan has 12 inline thin-gauge plastics thermoforming machines that have the capacity to convert 80-million pounds of plastic material annually.

  • Dordan has a fully enclosed and complete hardwall construction ISO Class 8 Cleanroom for the production of medical packaging. Dordan's cleanroom is equipped with 2019 Kiefel Speedformers that employ best-in-class forming, cutting, and stripping stations.

  • Dordan's plastic thermoforming machines are fitted with robotics and custom end-of-arm tooling for automated stripping and stacking of thermoformed parts and packaging.

  • We have small and large format thermoforming machines, depending on the requirements of the thermoformed package 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 packaging.

  • Dordan is a full service thermoform packaging designer and manufacturer. Because we have control over the design and production of the thermoformed package, 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 9001:2015 certified for the design, manufacture and distribution of custom thermoformed packaging.

  • Dordan can produce thermoformed parts up to 30" x 38" x 6" and between 0.010"- 0.080" thick in a variety of colors, textures, and finishes.
