FormTight Thick Gauge - Triple Station Rotary Machine

At FormTight Inc., we have the capability to custom thermoform a wide variety of plastic parts in our thick gauge division.

This video is an example of a small, medium, and large (Positioner Tray) being thermoformed using a triple stage rotary machine. These trays will be used in the veterinary medical field to transport, hold, and position any size animal during x-rays, including surgical procedures.

Examples of a typical formed part using the vacuum forming or thermoforming method are: cellular shroud covers, medical device trays, housing or safety guards for industrial equipment, panels used for mass transportation such as display enclosures as well as any exterior components.


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
