Thermoforming for Multi-Part Assembly – Live Webinar with McConnell Co.

Plastic Thermoforming Technical Webinar  (12/6/22 @ 11am EDT)

At Productive Plastics, many of the thermoformed plastic parts that we manufacture for our customers are not stand alone pieces, but components of an assembly or multi-part enclosure.  Like a puzzle, these individual parts must be manufactured to fit together with precision and uniformity to successfully create the finished product.

Productive will be hosting a live webinar on December 6th with renown thermoforming expert Robert Browning of the McConnell Company discussing considerations for designing and manufacturing a multi-part assembly with plastic thermoformed parts.

  Some of the topics we will cover:

  • Vacuum vs Pressure Forming
  • Material Considerations
  • Application to match process
  • Attachment Methods
  • Tolerance Considerations
  • Product Finishing
  • Q&A

We hope you can join us on December 6th @ 11am, please register below:
