Thermoforming

- Aug 21, 2018 -

There are many methods for plastic thermoforming, which can generally be divided into:

Molding uses a single mold (male or female mold) or a counter mold, and uses a mechanical pressure or a self-weight to form a sheet into a variety of products, which is different from the one-time molding. This method is applicable to all thermoplastics.

Differential pressure molding adopts single mode (male or negative mold) or counter mold, or mold can be used to make the soft plastic sheet close to the mold surface under the action of gas differential pressure, and then cooled to make various products. Forming method. Differential pressure forming can be divided into vacuum forming and air pressure forming.

Thermoforming is particularly suitable for the manufacture of articles with thin walls and large surface areas. Commonly used plastics are various types of polystyrene, plexiglass, polyvinyl chloride, ABS, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyamide, polycarbonate, and polyethylene terephthalate.

Thermoforming equipment includes clamping systems, heating systems, vacuum and compressed air systems, and forming dies.
