Miles Fiberglass and Composites houses one of the largest thermoformed machines in the Northwest. With our thermoforming machine we have the capability of producing molds as large as 110" x 110" in as little as three weeks. Vacuum thermoforming is fast and cost effective, and is a welcome addition to the Miles Fiberglass facility. Using this thermoforming process gives us the ability to adapt strength and flexibility to match the application.
Thermoformed parts have a superior finish to traditional fiberglass and allow for wider material and color choices. Overall aesthetics are superior when using vacuum forming because it uses a combination of heat pressure and vacuum pressure to form precise details and intricate undercuts. Other design advantages include molded in vents and ribs, textured surfaces, and various part sizes. Also, thermoforming machines give you the ability to quickly and inexpensively modify parts as needed.
