Considered by many to be one of the superior ways of creating specific shapes with plastic, custom thermoforming has only continued to grow in popularity. The process is very straightforward and deliberate in that plastic sheets are heated to a temperature that is considered pliable for forming. Once this step has been accomplished the plastic is then formed to an accurate and specific shape using a mold. Later, it is then trimmed in order to create the desired product or piece. It’s a system with a proven track record.
Common Household Accessories
Through the use of a vacuum, sheets of plastic are stretched over a mold to create an unlimited variety of parts, pieces, components and shapes. It is important to note that custom thermoforming of plastic is an entirely different process than what is commonly referred to as injection molding. From the automobile industry to aviation and the medical industry as well as agriculture and the creation of common household accessories, custom type thermoforming of plastic is a smart alternative to other technologies that have been used in the past.
