Prototypes and Samples

As a result of intense competition, multiple retailers are demanding increasing numbers of new products from suppliers. This is turn creates the need for Thermoforming companies to supply production quality samples in ever shorter timescales.

At TDX we continually invest in the latest CAD CAM technology and software to create a seamless flow between conceptual/product design and prototyping in order to reduce the turnaround time for prototypes.

Utilising CAD CAM data from our own design facility or our customers in-house design department our prototype department has its own dedicated CNC machining centres to provide a rapid prototyping service.

Our prototype department is supported by a large sample making facility equipped with both vacuum and pressure forming machines capable of producing samples in any material and volume.

TDX understands the commercial and operational pressure placed on Thermoforming companies when they are required to produce bulk samples from pilot tooling or new tooling for factory trials and store evaluation. Through our sampling facility we are able to manufacture bulk samples to stringent quality standards.
