Formech – The Thermoforming Solution from Desktop to Large Format
Formech has been one of the leading designers and manufacturers of vacuum forming machinery since its inception in 1982.
Formech has consistently strived to leave a mark in the industry by collaborating with the world’s leading tools, materials and trade farmers, aiming at developing a wide range of vacuum forming products delivering consistent results even with their most challenging applications.
The vacuum forming process is genuinely a magnificent process that has been used since the 1930s and is one of the oldest methods of processing plastic materials.
In this blog, we will look at the significance of the thermoforming process and its applications and discover Formech’s Thermoforming solution products from Desktop to Large format.
The Thermoforming Method
Thermoforming or Vacuum Forming method centres around heating a plastic sheet until it softens and then draping it over a mould. After which, a vacuum is then applied that sucks the sheet into the mould, after which the sheet is then ejected from the mould. Vacuum Forming takes the process to the next step by adding pressure to the part formed in the mould and offering further assistance to the moulding part.
A genuinely phenomenal process!
One of the focal benefits of this method is the speed at which all tooling can be produced, and the costs compared to injection moulding are much cheaper.
Vacuum Forming, when collaborating with new technologies like 3D printing for tool designing, thermo-formable ink technology and In-Mould decoration, brings infinite possibilities and advantages in vacuum forming for high-tech industries.
Vacuum Forming Applications
The world’s leading material science companies aggressively invest in developing thermo-formable plastics as they are more efficient to process and are also kinder to mother nature.
