FRIMO Thermoforming Technology

Satisfying all your thermoforming needs in one place

Thermoforming is a particularly efficient and effective technology with high-quality results and a virtually unlimited spectrum of applications. This technology involves hot forming various films or sheet materials with a vacuum in a positive or negative form. Film forming with IMG or TEPEO 2® technology is an economically efficient alternative to other forming processes, such as slush-molded or spray skin.

FRIMO's tailor-made tooling and system technologies are used all over the world in the automotive industry to produce cockpit and door components, as well as all kinds of interior trims. This technology is also used in various other industries, including for sanitary applications, medical and packaging products, "white goods", office materials, and sports and leisure articles.
