Cutting-edge pressure forming and vacuum forming

AV Engineering Services Ltd. is a UK founded company that is based in Melbourn, Royston, Herts.

Since 1975 we have been producing high quality products for a range of manufacturers worldwide. As an engineering based company we are able to offer our customers a complete manufacturing service.

AV Engineering Services is at the cutting edge of plastics pressure forming, using techniques that can replace the high cost of tooling for injection moulding.

Benefits of Plastics

The use of thermo formed plastics in manufacturing has enabled designers to develop products with shape, colour and style . It is possible to place these designs in taxing conditions, i.e. UV, chemical, temperature, impact, fire retardancy and radiation environments.

AV Moulding Capabilities

AV are able to produce bespoke dimensionally accurate enclosures, with injection-moulded quality on the ‘A’ surface up to 1460 x 960 x 400 mm, with wall thicknesses from 0.25 to 10 mm. All this with tooling costs at 10% of an injection mould equivalent and item production from one upwards.

AV are able to offer threaded inserts, either encapsulated in the forming process or post fitted, undercuts, logos and textures. All our processes suit prototyping, small, medium and large production runs or call offs over a period of time. AV products are 5-axis CNC machined, giving accurate and reproducible profiles with a capacity up to 2000 x 2000 x 710 mm.
