Thermoform Tooling

Custom thermoform tooling for horizontal form fill seal Packaging

Do you have a new package design in mind for your existing MDC machine? We will help you determine the optimum film layouts to keep waste at a minimum while maximizing outputs. We can even help you test out your new designs with alternative forming materials and lid stocks on our fully functional test system.

MDC Engineering, Inc boasts a staff of experienced packaging engineers and craftsman along with a complete in-house tool and die shop to design and build your thermoform tooling.

Upgrade to quick change thermoform tooling and reduce changeovers to under 10 minutes. Consider adding confirmation dies to speed up the manual loading process significantly and reduce loading errors.

MDC can also help you develop your thermoform tooling and packages with our small footprint form fill seal thermoformer. This small system is ideal for testing 1 or 2 up scenarios at a fraction of the cost of building out final production-tooling for your wider applications. The system is capable of running rigid and flexible formable films up to 14” wide on a 3 or 6” core.

  • Test film thicknesses against draw depths
  • Test vacuum vs air
  • Test draft angles and more
