San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Earlier this month San Diego based plastic fabrications Company Ameriwest Technology unveiled its latest technology; vacuum and pressure plastic thermoforming oven. This innovation now available at Ameriwest Technologies Inc. was developed for the purpose of vacuum forming plastic products for the manufacturing industry. What makes this plastic thermoforming technology unique is that it is capable of molding products on either end of the machine thus increasing productivity. For Ameriwest Technology this means that they will be able to produce a larger number of plastic products directly in San Diego, at the Ameriwest headquarters.
As a company that specializes in the creation of unique fabrication and prototypes, having an in house vacuum forming system makes an immense difference. Now instead of outsourcing the pressuring forming process to a different facility, Ameriwest is now able to provide vacuum and pressure-forming services in San Diego, making them the one stop shop for all aspects of the fabrication process. From conception, to design and into reality- Ameriwest is able to help aspiring inventors and engineers see their idea come into actuality.
“When I had an idea for a new product, I knew it would need to be made from some type of plastic. After years of experience in the aerospace industry I was familiar with design engineering and manufacturing of a number of different products and materials but never with plastics. Tom Haase of ATI Plastics became my Project Engineer and was the eminent professional in every way. He is knowledgeable, professional, thorough, courteous and respectful. He added value to my product by understanding its end use and was thus able at times to suggest enhancements and target markets I had not thought of. He stayed in touch and communicated with me so that I never felt that my project was dragging out or less important than any other. Tom has a large source of suppliers both on-shore and offshore for materials and manufacturing of those items that fall outside of his business. With both the rapid prototype and final part production, all parts, materials, and tooling were on time and on budget with the quotes I had been given. I am currently designing another product and will ask Tom to project engineer this one for me too.” –Ameriwest Technologies Client, Sandra Whitten from Oceanside California
The introduction of this new machine to Ameriwest comes at a fantastic time as the economic profile in the San Diego area continues to improve and lean toward the development of new products and inventions utilizing the vacuum and pressure forming technology. With plastic technology continuously being created for all industries including the life sciences, off shore drilling and biotechnology the prototypes developed at Ameriwest Technology Inc. very often go on to become mass produced on assembly lines for various different fields.
Established in 1996, Tom Haase formed Ameriwest Technology Inc. with the intention of being a literal all-inclusive resource for clients who required plastic fabrication for prototypes and short run production. Now, after over 17 years in the fabrication business Ameriwest is now positioned to provide vacuum forming and pressure forming services right here in San Diego. The introduction of this new machine into Ameriwest’s already vast range of services has the company poised to become one of the leading North American fabrication and development firms in the world. Since the manufacturing industry is so frequently out sourced overseas having affordable local access to these tools will make a world of difference for aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators located in this San Diego area.
With some very prestigious names already listed in their portfolio including, SAIC, Brook Automation and Autogenomics, Ameriwest Technology Inc. is poised to make an impact on the fabrication and manufacturing industry here in the U.S. Now that they are fully equipped with a new vacuum and pressure-forming machine in San Diego, they will be able attract even more lucrative clients.
