What isVacuum forming

Vacuum forming or thermoforming is forming a product by heating a plastic sheet. The sheet, a so-called “thermoplastic” wich is used for the thermoforming or vacuum forming is clamped in a stretcher. Then the sheet is heated untill is formable and air is blown under the plate so a small sphere is created. Then a mould of die is pressed from the bottom in the hot sheet of plastic, at the same time, the air between the mould or die and the plastic sheet is sucked away and the product gets its actual shape. After cooling down the sheet the mould or die is removed from the product and the product is ready for further finishing.
