Thermoforming definition :


This process consists to transform thermoplastic materials such as films, sheet and plates to 3D object. Thermoplastic materials take a rubbery consistency in high temperature.
At this time, the plastic is easily form by a tooling and frozen in this form by cooling.

Choosing your thermoforming method depends on :

  • Deformation to be imposed
  • The shape of manufacturing object
  • Type of thermoforming material
  • Material thickness
  • Economics means : machines, molds, number of series …


Thick thermoforming :


This kind of thermoformage consists by forming a plastic plate. This plate will be heated and then applied to a mold to convert the plastic by suction.
As a result of this thermoforming, the parts are milled and trimmed in order to obtain the final piece thanks to 5-axes machining centers.



Thick thermoforming advantages  :

  • Small, medium or large series
  • Pieces with large size
  • Reduce tooling cost
  • Short R&D time
  • Weight of pieces reduced compared to sheet metal
  • Wide range of material able to answer at constraints (transparency, shock, fire, UV, chemical resistance …)
