Design & Tooling

Working within a wide range of industries, Vakform constantly strive to help each and every one of our customers advance their concept plastic requirements through to production.

We also design and produce our own off-the-shelf goods ranging from small plastic formings through to large vacuumed items of up to 2600 x 2000 x 900mm.  These include preformed ponds, reservoirs, plenum boxes and play domes.


Product Design

Our state-of-the-art Solidworks 3D CAD design program enables us to re-create our customer's ideas and give them a scaled 360° visual.  With our precise attention to measurements and detail, we will ensure that you are able to envision any adjustments needing to be made before the tooling is manufactured.

Alternatively, do you have an idea but are unsure of dimensions, angles and proportion?  Or are you uncertain what material to go with for forming? - get in touch with one of our team today.  We are here to help out in whatever way possible and will be more than happy to provide technical advice.


Depending on the volume of formings required, size, shape and design of the item, vacuum forming tools are fabricated using either model board, resin or aluminium.  Generally the cost of manufacturing these are substantially lower than other processes, such as rotation or injection moulding - however, not all products are suited to being vacuumed.
