Also known as Thermoforming, vacuum/pressure forming converts a flat thermoplastic sheet into more complex three-dimensional shapes by the use of heat and pressure.
The thermoforming process involves the heating of a thermoplastic material to a particular temperature that softens it. The resulting hot and flexible material is forced against the contours of a mold by mechanical methods (tools, plugs, solid mold) or pneumatic methods (vacuum pressure or compressed air). The mold gives the sheet the needed shape and detail.
