What is Thermoforming? Thermoforming is a plastic fabricating process which involves heating sheet plastic and forming it over a male or female mold. The two basic types of thermoforming processes - vacuum forming and pressure forming - and derivative processes, such as twin sheet thermoforming, make plastic thermoforming a broad and diverse plastic forming process. Thermoformed plastics are ideally suited for automotive, consumer products, packaging, retail and display, sports and leisure, electronics, and industrial applications.
The most advantageous aspects of thermoforming are its low tooling and engineering costs and fast turnaround time which makes thermoforming or vacuuforming ideal for prototype development and low-volume production.
