BWF Thermoforms

Your specialist for thermoformed and injection moulded plastic parts

Experience, tradition and innovation – BWF Thermoforms stands for all of these things! For over 50 years, we have offered our customers competent and all-encompassing support for everything from the initial idea to the install-ready product in relation to the construction and production of thermoformed plastic housings, high-quality visible parts, plastic covers and technical functional parts.

Thermoforming
Large shapes and sharp-edged details

Warming, thermoforming, cooling and demoulding – how does it all work? Using our ultra-modern machines in Offingen and Geretsried, we produce individual thermoformed parts of injection moulded quality for customers in line with their thoughts and ideas.

We distinguish between two types of processes:
negative and positive thermoforming

Tool construction
Decades of know-how

Our in-house tool construction offers the opportunity for the construction and milling of tools in line with the customer’s wishes. Thanks to decades of experience in the construction and manufacturing of thermoforming tools, we offer you the highest quality and the shortest delivery times.

As a result of our special tool technology, complex requirements including undercuts, moulded logos and lettering, various surfaces, as well as detents and snap hooks can be realised. Thanks to the undercuts in the tool, precise edges can be moulded, which ensure that housing halves, for instance, finish flush and accurately. In addition, this technology enables accurate combinations consisting of several thermoformed parts .
