Vacuum forming, ordinarly known as vacuforming, is a simplified version of thermoforming. In this process a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto or into a single-surface mold, and held against the mold by applying vacuum between the mold surface and the sheet.
Product packaging, speaker casings and car dashboards, are just a few of the applications using the vacuum forming process. Vacuum forming has the advantage over injection molding when the part is large or requires a deep draw of stretch of the resin material. Vacuforming has always been a nitch seqment of the plastics industry.
There are less stocking used equipment dealers and due to the size of many molding systems, they are commonly sold over time where they sit as compared to being moved to a used dealer's floor.
