Placeteco inc. — Plastic forming company : thermoforming, composites, silicone molding, drape forming, cnc machining...

State of the art

Placeteco use state of the art technologies for vacuum forming, laminating composites part, resin infusion, polyurethane injection and moulding of silicone parts.

Processes

THERMOFORMING

This process is ideal for producing low cost small and medium sized quantity plastic components and parts. This process also allows for Twin Sheet Forming such as ventilation ducts.

Process Materials
Vacuum Forming ABS
Twin Sheet Forming ABS/PVC

Acrylic/PVC

Polycarbonates

Polyetherimide

Polyethylene
COMPOSITES

This process allows for the manufacturing of light and very resistant parts. These parts can be laminated or laminated with core.

Process Materials
Laminating in Clean Room Pre-impregnated fabric (Prepreg)
VARTM Phenolic resin

Epoxy resin
DRAPE FORMING

This process is particularly suited for forming acrylic parts.

Process Materials

Acrylic

Polypropylene
POLYURETHANE

The polyurethane process is suited for moulding flexible parts (arm-rest, head-rest, etc) or rigid parts (bumpers, frames, etc).  It also allows for the customization of colour, texture, and hardness.

Process Materials
Cast \ Expanded Rigid Polyurethane

Flexible Polyurethane
VULCANIZED SILICONE

Parts moulded using the vulcanized silicone process are capable of withstanding higher temperatures and can be used for a diverse number of applications.

Process Materials
High Temperature Liquid Silicone
Room Temperature Silicone Paste
MACHINING (CNC)

With the use of a Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine we can work on 3 axis on all types of materials and on 5 axis on non-metallic materials.
