Sigma's In-House Manufacturing Capabilities: Thermoforming      


Sigma is now thermoforming in-house at their 20,000 square-foot Technology Commercialization and New Product Development Manufacturing Center in Middlesex, New Jersey.


The versatile process of thermoforming can be used to design prototypes and packaging trays. After a plastic sheet is heated, it is then draped over an object and then vacuumed. When the plastic cools it creates a textured mold.  


Thermoforming services are a great addition to Sigma's growing in-house manufacturing capabilities including: 3D rapid prototyping, welding, CNC milling and machining.

Evidence of Standout Service


Low cost and fast turnaround is why The Evidence Store, a company providing legal photography, videos, and trail exhibit services, chose Sigma Design.

The company was asked to make a 1:28 scale model of an intersection in a case involving a large piece of construction equipment. One of the workers at the site was injured, and the model was going to be used in court to demonstrate the nature and geometry of the area.
The figures Sigma design 3D printed placed on the model.

Sigma was hired to make 16 3D human figures, with their initials on the base, to place and move around the model as part of the demonstration to the jury. The figures stood 2.57" tall.

"From the minute we called Sigma we were treated by professional, friendly people," said Stephen Appelbaum, President of The Evidence Store. "The case settled soon after the model was completed so it never saw the inside of a courtroom, but the out-of-state client was extremely pleased with the results and the fast service."
