A Comprehensive Guide to Vacuum Forming Production

Even though you might not know what it’s called, you’re probably already quite familiar with vacuum forming and thermoforming. You’ve no doubt eaten plenty of to-go dinners from plastic containers and then washed them down with beverages served in disposable cups. You may have also tried to cut or pry open your share of sturdy plastic clamshell packages and then victoriously tossed them aside after retrieving their well-protected contents. In your car, you can see thermoformed consoles and interior components in any direction you look. In addition, you can find vacuum-formed components on a surprisingly diverse variety of products that range from gourmet chocolate packaging to space station control panels!
