Prototype and Production
Our years of experience in the industry have allowed FB-AVAK to become the quality prototyping and production company it is today. Key to a successful moulding is good product design with vacuum forming capabilities designed in at an early stage, so the earlier we can become involved the more streamlined the process will be.
We can provide advice to ensure the product will meet your requirements, and can usually produce a sample moulding from CAD data within a few days. These prototype samples can be used to perfect the fit and form of the product, but also can be made in a selection of materials to ensure the correct finish and capability for the application.
We also offer a traditional tool-making facility, together with 3D laser scanning for those occasions when CAD data is not available. Tools are produced in wood or model board for prototyping, followed by either aluminium filled resin or cast aluminium production tools.
A CNC jig and trimming program will complete the process to ensure accurate finishing of the product every time.

At FB-AVAK we have been specialising in vacuum forming for over 40 years.
Our vacuum forming service does not stop at moulding and trimming. At FB-AVAK some of the products we manufacture will require finishing and assembly and we have a broad range of processes available.
Prototyping & Production
The key to a successful moulding is good product design with vacuum forming capabilities designed in at an early stage, so the earlier we can become involved the more streamlined the process will be.
We have invested in four 5-axis CNC macines in capacity from 1.0m x 1.0m up to 1.5m x 1.0m. The nature of the 5 axis head allows complex shapes to be machined accurately time after time.
