Lyle® LabForm

Prototyping Thermoformers

Get to market faster – for less With the LabForm thermoformer

The LabForm is ideal for evaluating the form, fit and function of your products prior to tool production, as well as producing samples for market tests. The high pressure and vacuum forming process allows you to obtain desired distribution characteristics replicating your full-scale production environment in a single or multi-cavity tool.

Save your valuable production machine capacity for larger runs by prototyping with this cut sheet laboratory sized thermoformer.
