Online PR News – 12-September-2012 – Sutton, Ma – Mayfield Plastics, a Sutton, MA based manufacturer of custom made thermoformed plastic parts, has announced a new series of informative truths about thermoforming. Designed to provide quick, useful technical information about the thermoforming process, Mayfield’s technical staff is producing the series to help mechanical engineers and designers understand the key pieces of information they need to know when considering the use of forming their parts with plastic. While many engineers may be familiar with plastic injection molding, the engineering community is often uninformed regarding the intricacies of thermoforming, pressure forming and vacuum forming.

“We hope to educate engineers and designers on the finer points of thermoforming”, said Harrison Greene, Vice-President of Growth and Development. “We feel it is important to educate and inform since we are the experts in this field and engineers and designers today are often faced with sourcing a huge variety of products.” This effort follows our well received “Introduction to Thermoforming Whitepaper” we published earlier in the year”, Greene said.

Mayfield Plastics ( is a manufacturer of custom pressure, vacuum formed twin sheet and thermoformed parts and components specializing in thermoformed medical devices and components, but also serving a variety of industries including telecom, electronics, computer, hospital, chromatography, machine-tool, transportation and aerospace.
