Fun Fact

Thermoforming today commonly involves the production of quality plastic products, but going back centuries, a variety of materials have been processed by heating and stretching/shaping including leather, bone and shells.

Plastic thermoforming is a process that involves heating a sheet of plastic until it reaches optimal pliability and can be stretched and/or shaped into the required formation, trimmed, and cooled. Broadly, thermoforming encompasses a range of fabrication techniques from pressure forming, to strip heat bending, to vacuum forming, which enable companies in all types of industries to produce plastic parts from simple to complex.

Thermoforming processes deliver end products that meet tight tolerances and sharp detail, and when combined with advanced finishing techniques, thermoforming can deliver results comparable to those formed by injection molding.
