Good Plastic Mudguard for Cars Produced by Vacuum Forming Process
Thermoforming (Vacuum Forming)
Vacuum forming is a method of plastic thermoforming that involves
placing a sheet of plastic into a frame and applying heat. When the
plastic is malleable and the proper temperature has been reached,
the plastic sheet begins to sag. The frame lowers, and the plastic
starts to cover the mold. After a seal is created around the
outside edges of the mold, a vacuum removes any air inside the
cavity. The vacuum action causes the plastic to be pulled down
around the mold.
Once the plastic has hardened, the vacuum is shut off, and the
platen that contains the mold is lowered (or raised if running the
mold on the top platen) leaving the newly-formed plastic part in
the vacuum forming machine’s clamp frame. The part is then removed
from the frame and all excess plastic is trimmed off around the
edges of the part.
Products that are usually made by the vacuum forming process
include: dashboards, display racks, beverage holders, blister
packs, hoods, covers, machine guards, radomes, seats, dunnage trays
and many other types of products.

Vacuum forming is the process of taking large sheets of plastic,
heating the sheets to a temperature that makes them pliable, then
using a vacuum to remove all of the air out from between the heated
plastic sheets and a pre-made mold. Depending on the type of
material used, vacuum forming can be performed rather quickly.
While vacuum forming is a technology that has been surpassed by
other methods of thermoforming, it still provides value for
specific use cases.
Custom Plastics Vacuum Formed to Your Specifications
At Advanced Plastiform, Inc. we’re committed to the success,
quality, and consistency of the products that we thermoform for
you, which is why we take it upon ourselves to fully manage your
vacuum forming project from beginning to end. Our staff and
engineers are knowledgeable and experienced with all kinds of
thermoforming and will help guide your project to the right
process, whether that is vacuum forming or not.
We design and engineer the mold, fabricate the prototype, vacuum
form, trim, and finish all in-house, ensuring that your final
product is to exact specifications and is high quality. Overseeing
all parts of the process allows us to control every aspect, to
ensure that your product is customized to your specifications and
needs, and to make certain that the project is completed in a
timely and cost-effective manner.
Advantages of Vacuum Forming
The advantages of vacuum forming shine through for large products
where detail or sharply defined edges are not necessary, such as
car bumpers and dashboards, body panels for recreational vehicles,
construction and farm equipment, and much more. Using a composite
mold, the vacuum thermoforming process can prove to be cheaper to
produce large plastic products. Another benefit it provides is the
ability for rapid product development.
Here is a sample of the many products that thermoforming can
- Car door liners
- Bath and shower trays
- Boat hulls
- Refrigerator liners
- Equipment panels
Additionally, vacuum forming has advantages over other types of
thermoforming because it uses low pressure to thermoform. This
helps to keep the final tooling costs down and means that less
expensive materials can be used to create the mold. Due to the low
cost of materials for the mold, it also keeps the prototyping and
fabrication of the mold times down, which means that even for
limited or low quantity runs, your project will be both
cost-effective and quick.
