What is thermoforming?

Thermoforming is a great option for molding lower volume or large plastic parts when lower tooling investment is required.  An extruded plastic sheet is loaded into a clamp frame, heated, and then drawn over a mold where vacuum is applied to pull the heated plastic into its final form.  Secondary trimming processes are utilized to create the final shape and incorporate installation and design features into the molded part.

AdvancTEK offers three thermoforming processes: Vacuum Forming, Pressure Forming, and Twin-Sheet Forming.
