Vacuum forming is a manufacturing process that involves heating a thermoplastic sheet until it becomes malleable and then placing it over a mould. The air is then sucked out from between the mould and the sheet, causing the plastic to conform to the shape of the mould. The plastic is then allowed to cool and harden, creating a three-dimensional object.
Vacuum forming is commonly used in the production of products such as packaging, automotive parts, signage, and consumer goods. It is a popular choice for manufacturing because it is relatively inexpensive and can produce a variety of shapes and sizes. Additionally, vacuum forming is a versatile process that can be used with a wide range of thermoplastic materials, including ABS, PVC, polycarbonate, and PETG.
