What is thermoforming?
Thermoforming is a generic term used to describe a group of
processes to produce plastic parts from a flat sheet of plastic
under temperature and pressure. A plastic sheet is heated to a
pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold,
and trimmed to create a usable product. The trimmed material is
reground and recycled.
If you are unfamiliar with thermoforming you would be greatly
surprised to find out how many thermoformed products you come
across in daily life. Thermoforming differs from injection molding,
blow molding, rotational molding, as well as other forms of
What are the benefits of thermoforming?
Thermoforming has several advantages over other processes.
Thermoforming is efficient and very cost-effective for the
production of many plastic parts depending on size, shape, and
quantity. Unlike other processes, thermoforming has a much shorter
lead time, initial project costs are usually much lower, there is a
large freedom of design, small details can be added, pre-colored
plastic is available with extensive choice of patterns, textures,
and finishes, and provides an excellent part volume/quality ratio.
What is vacuum forming?
Vacuum forming is a process in which a thermoplastic sheet is
heated to the appropriate temperature, stretched around or into a
mold/pattern, and conformed to the mold by applying vacuum pressure
between the mold surface and the plastic sheet. Because heating of
the material to be formed is required, vacuum forming is considered
a thermoforming process.
What is the difference between thermoforming and vacuum forming?
Vacuum forming is a type of thermoforming; both processes require
heating plastic to a malleable temperature and then cooling the
plastic into a new form. Vacuum forming is an additional process
during thermoforming in which vacuum pressure is used to conform
plastic to the mold during forming.
