Trays in Days Program

America Tape and Reel knows how important it is for you to deliver new products ahead of the competition; and when prototypes change at the last minute, it can be especially challenging to meet deadlines. Now our new Trays in Days program takes the worry out of getting custom trays produced in time for your prototype components, connectors and other small parts. With Trays in Days, we can produce one dozen, custom thermoformed trays you you to evaluate in just three days!

Tray Design

Give us the part geometry and we’ll design the tray. Your sample trays will be completed in one week after approval of your tray design.


Tray Material

We keep all common thermoforming-grade materials in stock. These include: RPET, PP, PE, PVC, PETG, PET, HIPS, etc. ln addition, we can provide ESD-rated materials, both topical and intrinsic. Less common materials can be obtained, although this can delay delivery. Material thickness must be between 0.002″ and 0.060″

Tray Format

Mid-America will build your tray according to the most recent thermoform tray standard: EIA-948 or EIA- 960. We also will build trays according to any other layout you suggest, as long as the tray is no larger than 23″ x 27″ x 3″. We will build a production quality mold in Days!, you will own the exclusive product rights to your mold.CALL 1-630-629-6646 Or just send an email at

Mold Specifications

Depending on the requirements and geometry of the tray, we will use either a male or female configuration. A plug assist will also be provided if required. We use aluminum to make all molds which can be used for short to medium run production at America Tape and Reel with no additional tooling cost.
