3D Printing Packaging Solutions
FormTight is leveraging 3D printing technology to set the bar in development costs and lead times for new thermoforming projects. FormTight can quickly produce 3D printed molds as well as help guide you through the design and production process.
3D Prototype Mold
3D Prototype Molds will help your company develop new items quickly, and are great for fit, function, and proof of concept. The parts formed from the printed molds will not have the clarity of a production machined aluminum mold, but the functionality and geometry will be there. The 3D Prototype Mold allows for the customer to have a tangible sample of their product or packaging in a timely fashion and gives them a chance to make any necessary changes prior to moving forward with production tooling.
3D Tooling Components
At FormTight, we utilize our 3D Printer to not only print 3D Prototype Molds, but other tooling components as well. If a customer’s prototype isn’t forming as well as expected and the customer has a tight tolerance requirement, then we may suggest a 3D Printed Plug Assist. The Plug Assist will help push the material into those tight radii/draft angles to meet the tolerance needs. We aren’t limited to only 3D Plug Assists as we commonly produce 3D Printed Concepts, Mold Layouts, Cavity Samples, etc.
We are a small manufacturing business in Denver Colorado that has several custom packaging needs for the product we sell. FormTight was able to look at our current packaging and reengineer our packaging to not only reduce our packaging cost but improve our product's appearance on our customer's shelf which has resulted in more sales. We have also found that because of their state of the art tooling fabrication capability, our tooling costs are less, turnaround time is quicker and we have more options on what we can do with the design of our packaging. Want to thank everyone at FormTight as they are our go to vendor.Taylor Tools - Denver, CO
We needed a custom product in a very short period of time and of course we needed it over the Holidays and under a very tight timeframe! Form Tight came through when no one else could. Customer service was excellent! Doug Ramsey came down in person to make sure we were all on the same page, met with a secondary company to make sure all the components would work together and then followed through all the way to the delivery. The final delivered product was on time and the quality is what was promised, 100%. I would recommend Form Tight to anyone who needed their services.Camerons Products, LLC - Colorado Springs, CO
After another thermoforming supplier proved unable to produce a useable part, FormTight went the extra mile to expedite material and production to meet an aggressive schedule. Our first meeting was very productive since FormTight included their thermoforming process experts and a representative from their preferred tooling foundry. Their selection of a different manufacturing technique (male instead of a female tool) was key to the success of the project.Arm Automation - Austin, TX
I would like to take this opportunity to provide my thanks for your company's great service over the years. We feel fortunate to be working with FormTight because you have solved all of the problems which we had experienced with our prior plastic component vendor. Your superior quality and service have improved our products and allowed us to better serve our customers.Portland, CT
