Pressure Forming | Pressure Thermoforming | Blow Forming

Pressure Forming: Pressure Forming is the method 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 utilizes air

Twin Sheet Forming | Twin Sheet Thermoforming | Twin Sheet Vacuum Forming

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

RT Prototyping | Rapid Tooling

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

Plastics | Types Of Plastics | Classification Of Plastics

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
