A Leader in Custom Plastic Manufacturing
Advanced Plastiform, Inc. is proud to be a leading plastics manufacturer for the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic region. Since 1988, we’ve been focused on how to continually improve our customers’ experience, whether that’s through providing durable, high-quality plastics in a range of materials, partnering with a variety of industries, or providing faster lead times and lower prices.
We currently operate three facilities across our Zebulon, North Carolina headquarters where we primarily offer heavy gauge thermoforming and injection molding. Not only is our location central to our delivery zones, but our headquarters and campus is designed to maximize our space and includes a 50,000 square foot space for shipping and 110,000 square feet for tooling storage and tooling assembly. This allows us to improve our lead times and get deliveries out fast.
Heavy Gauge Thermoforming
Much of our manufacturing is completed through vacuum forming, an efficient, inexpensive method of production in which we heat plastic to a pliable state, fit it around a custom tool, then use a vacuum to remove all the air to draw it firmly around the mold and get an accurate shape. Used for plastics that don’t need heavy detail and sharp corners, we manufacture everything from medical trays to car dashboards quickly with vacuum forming.
For more detailed projects, we also provide pressure forming and twin-sheet forming services. With 60,000 square feet of space dedicated specifically to thermoforming, our workflow is mapped out for maximum efficiency so we can keep all types of projects moving at once.
Injection Molding Plastics
For smaller plastic components, such as dials or knobs, we use injection molding, where plastic is heated to liquid, then, using a highly pressurized injector, it’s forced into a custom mold. This method allows for more precision and accuracy than thermoforming, and while it has a higher up-front cost due to tool design and prototyping, once crafted, it can be used permanently, lowering per-unit costs.
