Processing Methods
Die Cutting Including steel rule, engraved, rotary and male/female dies.

Laser or Water Jet Cutting Advancements in technology provide rapid prototyping as well as high-speed production.

Heat Forming Low-cost tooling and a simple process combine to produce parts with permanently formed angles.

Thermoforming Produces complex, rigid, three-dimensional shapes.

Machining Materials are easily fabricated with conventional machining techniques.
Additional Processing
Marking Materials may be embossed or printed to display product identification, part numbers, safety messages or technical information.

Lamination Laminating with aluminum or copper foil provides EMI/RFI shielding.

Adhesives Formex readily accepts adhesives for various applications.

Welding Formex can be bonded to itself using conventional welding techniques.

Joinery Methods Parts can be easily designed to incorporate a number of joining and fastening methods, often eliminating external fasteners.
