3D machining & 5 Axis CNC Trimming
In simple terms, the process of vacuum forming involves a flat sheet of plastic being perimeter clamped and then heated to an elastic forming state.
The mould is then pressed against the sheet, and a vacuum ensures that the sheet maintains its place until it has cooled back down. Once the sheet has cooled down, the plastic retains the shape of the mould.

Vacuum moulding is traditionally one of the oldest and most common types of processing plastic materials. It is common to see a variety of vacuum moulded products throughout our daily lives..
Thermoforming is a form of moulding that can produce a large range of usable products whilst also being one of the more affordable processes of plastic moulding when it comes to tooling costs and low to medium quantity production runs..
