In terms of manufacturing experience, few, if any, companies in
the plastics thermoforming industry can match EPI. On average, our
manufacturing personnel have over 20 years of experience in our
plant and bring superior skills and craftsmanship to a wide range
of custom plastics products. We have the ability to meet the most
exacting tolerances of our customers.
EPI's manufacturing plant in Gibsonville, NC comprises approximately 40,000 square feet. Virtually all aspects of a custom plastics fabrication job from original quotation to final shipment of products are handled in our fully-integrated Gibsonville facility. We are equipped to meet the following types of plastics thermoforming, vacuumforming and non-ferrous metal fabrication requirements:
Plastics Thermoforming & Vacuumforming:
We offer a complete range of plastics thermoforming and vacuumforming equipment using state of the art controls and zoned heating technology. We can create a single prototype for customer evaluation or satisfy high-volume production requirements. Our vacuumforming machines can accommodate sheet sizes as large as 54" x 106", and our oven capacity can handle sheet sizes up to 10' x 12', the largest standard thermoplastic sheet size available. Other plastics thermoforming capabilities include drape forming and strip heat bending.
We have extensive CNC capabilities for many types of custom machine work. Our technical staff specializes in the custom plastics fabrication and non-ferrous metal items. Our in-house tooling, manufacturing and inspection facilities assure total job control and quality through shipment. Specific machining services include:
- CNC Routing (5-axis)
- CNC Milling
- CNC Lathes
- Automatic Screw Machining
For both complete custom plastics fabrication products as well as customer-consigned parts, we have a full range of assembly capabilities. We can assemble and otherwise finish thermoformed or machined component parts. Solvent bonding, heat welding, screen printing and polishing are some of the other post-forming services that we offer.
Plastic Injection Molding:
Alternatively to plastics thermoforming, we offer injection molding services with capacity up to 550 tons.
Engineered Plastics can provide a wide range of specialized services where needed. We have a dedicated Tooling Department in our plant which can produce precision tooling of the highest quality. Our sales professionals can recommend specific plastics that will best meet the requirements for the part being produced.
