Large Part Thermoforming

Industrial Custom Products uses state of the art thermoforming and vacuum forming technologies to specialize in the development and production of OEM and custom large parts. Our large plastic part capabilities include the ability to thermoform and vacuum form heavy gauge plastic components that are up to eight feet by ten feet in size with forty inches of depth and .437 inches thick.

We produce large parts for the agricultural equipment, off-road vehicle, recreational vehicle, power sports, lawn and garden equipment and construction equipment industries including plastic roofs, canopies, shrouds, dunnage trays or returnable trays, tubs, trailers, lids, ice fishing sleds and covers.

ICP started producing award winning, high quality thermoformed plastic products and vacuum formed parts in 1975 and has manufactured high quality OEM and custom components since 1955.

The Proven ICP Quality Platform
The foundation of ICP is our absolute unyielding commitment to high quality work, low reject rates and on time delivery as evidenced by the numerous quality awards from working with some of the most successful companies in the world. Large part dimensions produce an amplification factor for any errors so quality and precision in production become even more important than with traditional sized parts.

Why use Thermoforming to Manufacture Large Plastic Parts
As a result of many advances in technology, the ICP Large Part Thermoforming Process can be a cost effective method for forming large plastic parts. Thermoforming has many advantages over injection molding for manufacturing large parts, including the capability to produce products that have an aesthetic, clean and professional look, significantly lower tooling costs, (thermoforming tooling costs can be a fraction of injection molding tooling costs, depending on the part and the materials), lower final production costs, shorter lead times for tooling and production and increased speed to market leading to faster product development and final production.

Can I Save Money by Thermoforming my Part?
Ask us if you can achieve a clean, professional look, reduce your manufacturing costs and increase speed to market by thermoforming your part rather than using injection molding. Just attach your design or drawing to your email.
