Moulds for Thermoforming Machines

What is Thermoforming?

Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. The sheet, or "film" when referring to thinner gauges and certain material types, is heated in an oven to a high-enough temperature that it can be stretched into or onto a mold and cooled to a finished shape.

In practice, large machines are used to heat specialized plastic sheets that are moulded through a continuous and high-speed process.

Thermoforming is very different from other technologies of manufacturing and processing plastics. It is used to produce a variety of articles used in industries like food, hospitality, medicine, FMCG, etc.
