Custom Thermoforming

Machine Guard & Cover Company does far more than plastic machine safety guards. We also create custom vacuum formed solutions for almost any plastic fabrication need. If you need a plastic prototype for a project, we can do that as well.

Here is a small sampling of the custom thermoformed parts we make.

Cover for Floor Care Machines

These custom covers for a floor care machine are trimmed into two different versions for two different machines. They are made in a custom gray because the volume is high enough to be able to afford a custom color. We also vacuum form a little door for a storage compartment.

Bottle Cap Sorter Component

This part was originally made of stainless steel, and the V-shaped pieces were machined Phenolic. We replaced this very expensive assembly with a one-piece custom thermoformed plastic part.

Cover for Bicycle Motor

This little OEM makes conversion kits to allow your bicycle to be powered by a small gasoline engine. We supply hundreds of this thin, totally custom vacuum formed part each year.

Transparent Hopper

Our client’s customers like being able to see the bottle caps being dispensed in this custom thermoformed hopper. These hoppers have been made in lots of five at a time. The plastic is Transparent FDA Food Contact Approved PETG, and the glue is a FDA Food Contact Approved glue as well.
