Operating efficiency, flexibility, and fast changeovers were the big themes in new equipment at the show.
With careful planning and adherence to best practices, crafting the right plug assist can put you on the path to high-quality, repeatable parts.
Common problems encountered in the cut-sheet thermoforming process include thin spots, webbing, poor part definition, and plug/pusher mark-off.
CMT Materials Inc., Attleboro, Mass., will debut technologies that thermoformers can use to reduce sheet thickness when forming heavy-gauge materials at the NPE 2012 show in Orlando.
Continuous in-line packaging systems headed up the K 2010 thermoforming news as suppliers launched a range of roll-fed systems with greater capacity, more flexibility, and improved automation.
A new continuous roll-fed machine for high-precision forming and a flexible pressure former for prototyping were among the highlights of the recent 18th Annual SPE Thermoforming Conference in Minneapolis.
A new epoxy plug-assist material reportedly provides improved surface finish for forming clear PP cups.
