Vacuum Form Tooling

At FET Engineering, Inc. we offer high quality custom vacuum form tooling for a wide range of applications, from shoe soles to automotive instrument panels. Our vacuum forming molds are expertly designed and manufactured utilizing a number of high precision manufacturing processes. Tooling types including female shells, male tooling, with in-mold grain (IMG), and in-mold grain laminate (IMGL). Custom tooling can be composed of materials such as nickel, aluminum, and resin in sizes of up to 84” x 60”. Completed molds are tested for integrity and accuracy with our proven testing protocols including hardness, ultrasonic, and stress analysis as well as dimensional testing using coordinate measuring machine (CMM) and Ferro Arm inspection techniques.

Rapid turnaround times and dependable deliveries are achieved by our adherence to standardized program timelines. All production takes place at our state of the art 36,000 sq-ft, ISO 14001 and 9001 certified facility. Our responsive customer service and availability to travel on-site, along with our capabilities to offer “cradle to grave” program management allow us to consistently exceed client expectations.
