Advantages of Thermoforming

Thermoforming has some distinct advantages in the Medical Design market space.  Products that are low to medium in volume or require customized secondary cutting are good candidates for the thermoforming process.  Thermoforming is also an excellent choice to start a product launch for a first production run becuase tooling costs are relatively low and the leadtimes are relatively short.

Thanks for the report, especially on the large-scale thermoformed parts for MRI equipment. I've often wondered how those could be made for such huge machines.
