PolyLink Thermoforming Operator 2


PolyLink Solutions offers multiple options in vacuum thermoforming set-ups to accommodate both small and large sizes of finished products, in a variety of plastic compositions and colours, including, but not limited to ABS, HDPE, HIPS, and PVC.

In vacuum forming, a solid sheet of plastic is heated, then draped over a mould, and held in place using a vacuum for a predetermined length of time. Factors affecting process time include plastic composition, sheet thickness, and desired outcome. Once moulded, the product is cooled, trimmed and, if required, assembled.

PolyLink Solutions’ production flexibility allows us to efficiently design and produce small prototype runs, as well as deliver high-volume production volumes.


Depending on production volume, we can produce small volumes using wood tools, and larger volumes using water cooled aluminum tooling.


Our 4 station rotary vacuum formers can produce shapes up to 6' by 6' in size, in single and multi-cavity tools. We also have a machine with a 10' bed size for larger parts.

We Work With Any Volume

With quick change philosophy and tooling, we can produce a handful of parts up to several thousand in a single run.

Rubber Compression Moulding

Whether it’s a 1-step process or a 4-step process, PolyLink Solutions’ vertically integrated capabilities keep the customer’s product competitive while maintaining quality from beginning to end. As a Lean manufacturer, quality certified to ISO 9001, PolyLink Solutions confirms its commitment to its customers and continuously improves its production processes through these programs.

PolyLink Solutions’ production team works with mills, presses and die-cutters to manufacture products that are used across a variety of industries.


The Heat is On

A range of tonnage presses produce flat and profiled products in various rubbers.

Trimming, Die-Cutting and Assembly

Depending on the specifics of your project, like volume for example, PolyLink Solutions can use either robotic or hand trimming to remove flashing from a finished part. Once done, and if required, they offer a designated assembly area.

Die-cutting is common after flexible sheet extrusion and compression moulding. Custom trim dies are made to deliver a precise final cut and finish. During rubber production, large rubber blanks are formed ahead of time that will accommodate multiple die cut parts which decreases the  cost to the customer.

To maximize efficiencies for their customers, PolyLink Solutions reduces the need for multiple partners in the production process. As a single source supplier, PolyLink Solutions can do it all, including the final assembly of your product, and even deliver to your door.

Robotic Trimming

Different trimming solutions can be offered depending on volume and part complexity.


Die-cut presses produce products from small to large, utilizing tools built to customer specifications.



From a single attachment to providing complete kits, our experience includes a variety of fasteners, brackets, and hinges.
