Understanding Pressure Forming
Techniform Industries begins each project by identifying which plastic thermoforming process will meet a customer’s budget and quality criteria -

LET'S LOOK AT PRESSURE FORMING...

Pressure Forming produces the most detail of the Thermoforming processes.

Similar to the other methods, Plastic Pressure Forming starts with sheet plastic being heated and formed by forcing the plastic onto a mold, however, this method uses more extreme amounts of air pressure to achieve a finished product. Compared to Vacuum Forming more detail can be achieved during Pressure Forming than any other Thermoforming method. The result of this added pressure is a product which looks very similar to an injection molded product, but with a much lower tooling cost.

Techniform provides high-quality pressure forming of custom plastic enclosures for a wide range of medical, industrial, and computer products to name a few. When it comes to plastic pressure forming, we are a leader in the thermoforming process and plastic sheet vacuum forming industry. Plastic pressure formed parts can produce a finish and offer a unique preciseness. Pressure forming is a variation of vacuum forming utilizing both vacuum and compressed air to force the plastic sheet against a thermoforming mold. Pressure forming is a specialized type of vacuum forming which uses both positive pressure and negative airflow to create a very detailed plastic component like injection moulding is well known for creating. This particular thermoforming process is a sophisticated version of the vacuum forming process which utilizes the air. If crisp edges, fine surface details, aesthetic, and undercut issues are of concern pressure forming a plastic part is your best option. The benefits of pressure forming are countless when it comes to needing a sharp molded custom plastic formed product.
