Baltimore, MD, October 25, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Maryland Thermoform, a vertically integrated custom plastic processor, announced today that they purchased two 3 station rotary thermoforming machines and has begun the installation process. The first line was available in September 2017.
Tammy Sagastume, New Business Manager for Maryland Thermoform stated, "The company is best known for its light gauge thermoform packaging in the cosmetic, electronic, medical, food packaging, and retail markets. However, the company's capacity and all around sophistication have made us a very capable heavy gauge industrial thermoforming company as well.
"These two new lines will allow us more flexibility and more capacity to supply our customers. It makes my job so much easier having both processing methods of equipment. I can match machines to projects, offering the customer internationally competitive products and prices.
"Additionally, our abilities in the field of CNC machining and 3D printing has allowed us to keep pace with our larger competitors while still serving all sizes of clients including the venture capital start-ups.
"We were once fueled by venture capital so we understand the hurdles and can make it attractive to work with as a vendor. Our larger competitors have parameters to work within that do not exist at Maryland Thermoform."
Scott Macdonald, speaking for Maryland Thermoform emphasized, “our two distinctive processing methods allow for specific market emphasis as well. Cut sheet equipment utilizing PPS, Ultem, Nylon and other high heat and specialty materials focus us into defense and aerospace markets. The roll-fed equipment allows targeting all the commonly molded commodity materials like PET, PS, HDPE, ABS, HDPE, and PP and services the electronic, medical, food packaging, and retail markets. In each method, we manufacture in small to medium size press sizes. We have declined to manufacture huge parts like truck bed liners and large construction equipment.”
The thermoforming process is typically performed with either roll-fed or cut sheetfed automated equipment. Most companies usually specialize in either method rather than creating the capacity to do both methods. Maryland Thermoform, started by Tony Gerace in the early seventies, thermoformed exclusively with cut sheet processing equipment until 1994, when the company was reorganized and reopened as a multi-faceted processor with a cut sheet and roll-fed equipment.
