"Kintz Plastics is not your typical thermoformer. This high-tech industrial manufacturer, nestled in rural upstate New York, is an injection molder’s worst nightmare. Kintz is one of a growing group of thermoformers that specializes in high-precision products for the medical, computer, and transportation industries. Molders are looking over their shoulders at companies like Kintz, which use pressure forming and CNC trimming/routing to produce the complex geometries and tight tolerances that were once the exclusive domain of injection molding. “We do the difficult stuff, things that run-of-the-mill thermoformers have problems with,” says president Wynn Kintz. And they are doing it with lower cost machinery and tooling than injection molders."
