Twin-sheet Thermoforming Reduces Cost of Testing Instrument

"Replacing solid, fibre-reinforced plastics with twin-sheet thermoforming dramatically reduced the cost of the side doors of Immulite, a medical diagnostic testing instrument from Siemens."

These enclosures for an immunoassay medical diagnostic testing instrument were made with twin-sheet thermoforming.

Family-owned Kintz Plastics Inc. (Howes Cave, New York, United States), a leading manufacturer of heavy-gauge thermoformed products, turned to twin-sheet thermoforming with a proprietary thermoplastic alloy to produce heavy-duty enclosures for Immulite, an immunoassay medical diagnostic testing instrument from Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics.
