This typically involves adding hardware, machined or fabricated metal or plastic parts, and electronics to the thermoformed parts to create the final product or a major sub-assembly. Sometimes multiple vacuum thermoformed parts are bonded to create a single assembly, or outsourced sheet metal and/or machined plastic parts are added to provide upper level assemblies.
