THERMOFORMING

The thermoforming process applies heat in a controlled environment to a commodity or custom engineered plastic sheet. Using vacuum, the softened and pliable plastic sheet material is drawn over a mold, cooled then released. The thermoforming process is ideally suited for prototyping, low to mid-range production or higher volume applications using multi-cavity molds and semi or fully automated forming and trimming equipment.
• Relatively Low Tooling Costs
• Rapid Startup
• Formed-in Color and Texture
• Economical for Moderate Production
• High-Strength/Weight Ratio
• Cost Effective Prototyping
