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.
