Vacuum Formed Components

Vacuum Formed Components


Vacuum forming is a popular manufacturing process used in the packaging industry to produce a wide range of components. It involves the creation of plastic products by heating a flat sheet of thermoplastic material, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), PET, or polystyrene (PS), until it becomes soft and pliable. The softened sheet is then stretched over a mould using a vacuum, which sucks the air out between the sheet and the mould, causing the plastic to conform to the mould's shape. Once cooled and solidified, the formed plastic component is trimmed and finished to create the final packaging product.

The processes involved in Extrusion Blow Moulded Components are:
  • HIPS
  • PVC
Vacuum formed components refer to plastic parts or products that are created through the vacuum forming process. Vacuum forming is a manufacturing technique in which a heated, pliable thermoplastic sheet is placed over a mould, and a vacuum is applied to shape the plastic around the mould contours. Once the plastic cools and solidifies, it retains the shape of the mould, resulting in a formed component. These vacuum formed components can take various forms depending on the specific application and requirements. They can be designed as trays, blister packs, clamshell packaging, inserts, protective covers, display stands, and more. The size, shape, and features of the components can be customised to suit the intended purpose.

Vacuum formed components are widely used in the packaging industry due to their versatility and cost-effectiveness. They can be found in various packaging applications, including blister packs, clamshell packaging, trays, inserts, protective covers, and display stands.
