What is Thermoforming?

Thermoforming is a plastic molding technique that results in a variety of usable products. During this manufacturing process, thin plastic sheets are heated in order to make them easy to manipulate. Once a sheet reaches a pliable temperature, it is formed over a male or female mold.

Benefits of Thermoforming

In addition to being cost-effective compared to injection molding, there are a wealth of benefits to thermoforming, including:

  • Quick production time
  • Economical for shorter-run projects
  • Aesthetic packaging
  • Functional use for the consumer
  • Easy to make part changes
