For the 2015 SPE thermoforming competition, Productive Plastics submitted two entries. An MRI scanning unit won the Gold Award in the Heavy Gauge - Combined Value Added Assembly category. This medical scanner had ten thermoformed parts made with cast molds and machined molds. There is a separate metal frame and custom hardware that were designed to reduce installation and service time. The painted covers have a high gloss finish.
The second entry was in the Heavy Gauge Pressure Form category - an automated medical diagnostic test machine consisting of 7 different pressure formed parts. These part were attached to a metal skeleton and required tight tolerances. The pressure forming process (http://www.productiveplastics.com/pressure-forming/) utilized a textured mold.
“Both entries demonstrate Productive Plastics' long-standing expertise in contract manufacturing for the medical diagnostics equipment industry, where there can be many engineering challenges,” stated Evan Gilham, Productive Plastics COO. “So we really appreciate the recognition from SPE for our work with these medical heavy gauge thermoforming projects.”
