Thermoforming

In this process, plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature then shaped into a part by a male and female mold with the help of a vacuum. Thermoforming can be categorized into thin- and thick-gauge. The former is for packaging applications such cups, trays, lids and clamshells. Thick-gauge thermoformed parts include refrigerator door liners and truck-bed liners.
