Thermoforming

Of Thermoplastics

Thermoforming Process

We specialize in thermoforming (also called deep drawing or vacuum forming) of plates and foils. In thermoforming, a plastic plate is heated. Through a vacuum, the plastic is then deep-drawn over a tool. Subsequently, the plastic part is cooled by a blowing device to a certain temperature and thus remains dimensionally stable.

Using thermoforming, we make parts made of thermoplastic materials such as ABS, polypropylene or polycarbonate as well as material mixes with PMMA, ASA or TPU. With our process-controlled plate forming machine, we achieve efficient cycle performance and consistent product quality. On our machine, we can realize a maximum molding surface of 1450 x 950 mm.

Cost-effective Part Manufacturing

Using thermoforming, molded parts can be produced inexpensively. This is principally due to large purchasing volumes of raw materials, lower tooling costs and fast cycle times

Creative Decors through Raw Materials

There is a broad selection of plastics. The possibilities to achieve various designs through printing, graining, fiber-reinforcing, and textile-clad thermoplastics are endless. Material combinations of a base layer of for example cost-effective ABS and laminations allow an optimal cost and design mixture

Preprogrammed Accuracy

In the thermoforming process, we can precisely calibrate the various process steps such as duration, heating phases and cooling. Once the perfect settings have been found, our machine saves these and they can easily be used again later. This way we achieve a high and consistent quality level.
