MANUFACTURING

We incorporate a wide variety of manufacturing capabilities to meet the quality and cost expectations of our customers. With the integration of cutting edge foam, wood, and corrugated cutting technologies, our ability to fit specialized requirements has never been easier!

CONVOLUTING

Convoluting is a process that can yield "egg-crate" foam. This wavy profile of foam is commonly used in hard case lids or corrugated packaging. We can custom tailor our convoluted foam to any thickness.

SONIC WELDING

Ultrasonic welding is used for fusing plastic corrugated to itself. It does so by using pressure and high frequency vibrations to heat the materials. This is most commonly used to make reusable cartons or buckled containers with partitions. 

LAMINATING

Our laminators can bond most of our materials for use in cushioned or crated packaging. In most cases, we bond foam to foam, corrugated or wood. Due to its even application of adhesive, laminated parts usually have a strong bond.

MOLDING

Though not commonly used today, molded urethane parts can be manufactured at our facility. The molded foam process is usually done for more complex part geometries.

BULK LIQUID PACKING

Bulk industrial liquids can be repackaged into kits or smaller containers either for commercial or retail purposes.

DIE CUTTING

Our automated die presses are capable of cutting large sheets of foam, plastic, or corrugated. For extra long parts, we employ the use of roller dies, an economical tool for high volume production.

CUTTING TABLE

Our multi-tool cutting table can score, draw, cut, and slice stock to create prototypes or one off parts with a high tolerance. 

FOAM HEAT BONDING

In addition to laminating, automated and manual focused heat applicators can be used to produce a seamless bond in foam assemblies. 

CNC FOAM CUTTING

Complicated profiles in polyurethane or polyethylene foam can be cut on our large CNC blade cutters. Straight from the bun-stock, we can cut any shape, small or large.

WATERJET CUTTING

Waterjet cutting allows for quick prototyping or low-volume orders without the cost of tooling. It also allows for most of our materials to be fabricated with high tolerances.
