Process of heating a thermoplastic sheet and applying a force to form it into or over a mold

Benefits of the Thermoforming Process

The most advantageous aspects of thermoforming are its low tooling and engineering costs as well as its fast turnaround time.

  • Lower to no tooling cost
  • Good for low volume runs 
  • Quick turnaround times
  • Perfect for larger parts with thin walls. (Covers, guards, windows, trays)

Almost any thermoplastic can be thermoformed. As with any manufacturing process, there are wide variances in the cost of different materials due to the polymer cost, temperature of processing, crystallinity of the resin, or, in general, the degree of difficulty of extruding the sheet.
