  • Thermoforming at NPE: Machines Raise Performance Bar

    Exhibitors at this year’s show introduced an assortment of new machines and upgraded models with designs incorporating the latest in mechanical, hydraulic, and electronic technologies.

  • Thermoforming at NPE: Less Scrap, More Power For the Buck

    Most of the developments will focus on in-line systems.

  • Thermoforming at NPE 2003

    There will be fewer thermoforming machines on display at NPE 2003 than at many recent NPEs.

  • NPE 2009 Wrap-Up: New Machinery for Thermoforming

    NPE had its share of innovations in thermoforming, notably a new machine that opens the small-bottle market to thermoformers. New trim stations offer more in the way of output and versatility. And more machines are now outfitted with off-the-shelf controls to facilitate servicing. A line of formers from Australia also arrived in the U.S. (Note: additional NPE thermoforming news appeared in May and June—see Learn More box.)

  • NPE News in Thermoforming

    For thermoforming of both heavy-gauge sheet and thin-gauge packaging, the show will present new machines with unusual flexibility, able to form a wide variety of products and materials.

  • What's New at the Show in THERMOFORMING

    Continuous in-line packaging systems will be the main emphasis in thermoforming at K 2007.

  • Novel Sheet Splicer Reduces Downtime

    One of the fi rst commercial continuous sheet splicers has been developed for polystyrene foam thermoforming lines.

  • The new 4242 berry-basket tooling system from Irwin Research & Development Inc., Yakima, Wash., consolidates pre-punch and trimming operations into one station.

  • NPE 2006 News Wrap-Up: Thermoforming

    Several new processing technologies unveiled at NPE point to thermoforming’s growing capability to produce in-mold labeled and decorated plastic parts.

  • NPE News Wrap-Up: Thermoforming

    Soaring interest in in-mold finishing techniques for injection molding and fiber-reinforced composites offers new prospects for cut-sheet formers.

  • Servos Drive Faster Packaging Systems

    High-speed packaging systems dominated thermoforming news in Dusseldorf. A new shallow-draw, servo-driven system promises to make formed PP deli lids competitive with injection molded LLDPE. Other new machines use electric servo motors to speed forming of PS, PE, and PET packaging.

  • Foamed PET Sheet Tackles New Markets

    Perpetually in its infancy, PET foam sheet has been a hard sell for packaging producers over nearly a decade. It found successful niches in thermoformed ovenable bakery trays, meat trays, and reheatable dinner trays for home delivery to disabled persons.
