 Let us understand in this blog how you can make POP displays more appealing and excellent in look with the help of the thermoforming process. The making of POP displays is not just the work of a single machine but involves three different pieces of equipment. 

Let’s dive into the process of making attractive and lively POP displays. 

Massivit 3D

With the help of efficacious 3D printers like Massivit 3D, we can get flexible designs and can make strong as well as lightly weighted parts. With Massivit 3D, the short-run molds for thermoforming are made possible. The printer has become a proven method of gaining huge profits in a shorter duration of time.

Thermoforming needs to be implemented when you need multiple copies of the same product. What you all have to do is to take a mold and then place it on the thermoplastic sheet on the top position. Add heat as well as a vacuum. This is how the sheet will take the form of the mold. 3D printed molds are simple to customize and hence it is the primary reason behind their increasing popularity. You can easily design several graphics to adapt the mold. With one mold you can create several digitally printed variations.

3D Printers offer the fastest design and help to minimize the processing time. Massivit 3D has become the most cost-effective and efficient solution for 3D printing molds.  

In the retailer business, the requirements and promotions have been consistently changing and new products are introduced on a daily basis. Hence, the SPEED matters the most for the retailing industry and this is where MASSIVIT 3D comes to the rescue. With this advanced technology printer, retailers can design anything their customers wish for in a faster method that they never ever have imagined!

A traditional mold is very expensive, making short run thermoforming jobs cost-prohibitive. A traditional mold also takes about a month to manufacture. A 3D-printed mold is a fraction of the cost and takes a fraction of the time to produce. Watch how fast and easy you can transform a 2D billboard to eye-catching 3D with 3D-printed molds for thermoforming.

Another benefit of 3D printing is the ability to create complex designs. Create logos, characters, mascots. . .you name it. Massivit 3D makes it possible. 

Print any graphics on the plastic sheets or vinyl yourself. If you don’t have a thermoforming machine, send the sheets out for thermoforming with your 3D-printed mold. 

Being able to 3D print short run molds for thermoforming can bring in more business and new business once the word is out that you can create dozens of displays with 3D printing. The next time you are asked to create a short run of displays (or vehicle wraps, signs, props, etc.), say, “YES!” and turn to Massivit 3D

Lastly, the mold and the 3D printed graphic undergo the thermoforming process with the help of Formech. Formech is a vacuum forming machine that offers high performance and is fully automatic. It has a large format that is specifically designed for point-of-sale film and theatre set design aerospace applications as well as automatic application.

In the process of thermoforming, the mold is first placed inside the machine and a sheet is placed on the top of the mould at some height. Then, the machine creates a vacuum on the sheet which is of the same shape and size as that of the mold. This way, an appealing and flawless POP Display is created that feels real!
