Thermoformed Trays

Thermoformed trays can be as simple as an opened, flat-bottom tray or designed and formed to specific shapes for containing individual items.  By definition a tray helps to contain or transport items and this applies to the industrial sector as well as to consumer goods.  Using the tray in this top image, an industrial component is stored and transported through an assembly line.  In a consumer example below, a header card slides into the tray holding the wood cover.  In each example, the product/component is protected and visible. 

Another use for trays is to contain individual pieces that are part of a larger product.  The filled tray slides into an outer packaging, protecting the parts inside.  Combine a tray of this type with a clear box for the perfect visual package!

Material Thickness
Trays are manufactured from material thicknesses ranging from .007 inches to .047 inches.  Typically, sheet thickness less than 1.5 mm (0.060 inches) is considered thin gauge.  A typical heavy gauge thickness is greater than 3 mm (0.120 inches)

PVC, PETG, and PET are the most commonly used materials.
