Thermoforming Materials: Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. There is a wide range of thermoforming materials that provide just the right properties for your plastic formed product, and each material has physical characteristics that make it suitable

Pressure forming process, Positive molds, Advantages of pressure forming over thermoforming

Pressure Forming process: The pressure Forming is the process used to produce injection mold quality, high definition plastic component parts, housings and containers without the huge expense of tooling. It involves positive pressure to force the heated plastic into the mold cavity. This is called pressure thermoforming or blow forming. Pressure Forming Working Operation: The highly versatile pressure forming process

Twin sheet thermoforming, Double sided panel, Custom plastic parts

Twin sheet thermoforming has advantages over other methods of thermoforming and other plastics manufacturing processes depending on the part and its use. Has a lower tooling cost – about 20-30% less than blow molding Yields parts with high structural integrity and rigidity compared to single walled thermoforming Allows for an enclosed cavity Can include various internal reinforcements, including structural elements

An Application of Rapid prototyping is Rapid tooling, this an automatic fabrication of machine tools. Tooling is one of the most costly steps in the manufacturing process. Tools are often complex and need to be wear resistant for production. To meet these requirements, molds and dies are traditionally made by CNC machining, EDM or other methods. All traditional methods are

What are Plastics? Plastics are a material that is made up mainly of macromolecules, that can be made fluid by the action of heating and pressurizing, and that can be processed into end products with any useful shape you want to make. Classification of Plastics Plastics can be classified into: 1. Thermoplastics and Thermo sets 2. Amorphous Thermoplastics and Crystalline

Interpolation The method by which contouring machine tools move from one programmed point to the next is called interpolation. This ability to merge individual axis points into a predefined tool path is built into most of today’s MCUs. There are five methods of interpolation: linear circular helical parabolic cubic All contouring controls provide linear interpolation, and most controls are capable

Two types of programming modes, the incremental system and the absolute system, are used for CNC. Both systems have applications in CNC programming, and no system is either right or wrong all the time. Most controls on machine tools today are capable of handling either incremental or absolute programming.   Incremental program locations are always given as the distance and
