The Gold Standard in Thermoforming
Profiles of the winning projects in this year’s Thermoforming Conference Parts Competition, sponsored by the Society of Plastics Engineers.
November 3, 2023
The winners of this year’s Thermoforming Conference Parts Competition were crowned late last month in Cleveland during a gala organized by the Thermoforming Division of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE). We previously profiled the recipients of gold awards in medical-related projects in “Medical Applications Strike Gold in Thermoforming Awards.” In this slide show, we feature the other thermoformers that took home the gold.
Competition chair Travis Kieffer applauded in a prepared statement the “quality and diversity of the entries.” The companies and projects featured here certainly bear this out. From a pallet-and-lid assembly that prolongs the freshness of globally shipped produce to thermoformed plastic parts that replace labor-intensive fiberglass components and save an automotive OEM a truckload of money, it’s clear that innovation and ingenuity continue to thrive in the thermoforming sector.
