Features Of Vacuum Forming And Thermoforming
The main advantages of vacuum forming are saved mold and prototype time, quick delivery, short development cycle, and low development cost. ease of management saves manpower, improves efficiency, Small Moq, and so on.
Disadvantages of Vacuum Forming are Consistent wall thickness is not achievable, very deep parts can be challenging.
The intricacy of parts is restricted, additional details can be added with pressure forming.
Some clear parts will exhibit mark-off (defects or dirt from mould will transfer to parts)
Vacuum forming offers several processing advantages over other forming processes. Low forming pressures are used thus enabling comparatively low cost tooling. Since the process uses low pressures, the moulds can be made of inexpensive materials and mould fabrication time can be reasonably short.
Thermoforming holds many advantages that make it a favorable process over other types of molding. Some of these advantages include The ability to create several finished parts from the same vacuum forming material. It allows for the detection of possible design and fit issues before it is too late.
