vacuum form over. formings are the actual vacuum formed parts. introduction this report is primarily about the design and manufacturing of a mould for a vacuum formed project which was undertaken by derek hillyard at hethel engineering centre () and me, steve daly at langley independent school ().
there are advantages with custom plastic thermoforming, such as lower tooling costs compared to other plastic processes such as injection molding. in addition, design and functionality can be created with thermoformed products without having to invest in extremely high tooling costs which would be required with other molding processes.
vacuum forming is a simple process that uses heat to soften a plastic sheet and then vacuums it down tightly against a pattern or mold. our patented mold process gives us the ability to product quality production tools at the fraction of the cost of aluminum tools.

vacuum forming is a simplified version of thermoforming, whereby a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto or into a single surface mold, and held against the mold by applying a vacuum between the mold surface and the sheet. the vacuum forming process can be used to make most product packaging and speaker casings
once softened, the sheet is forced against a mold with the desired shape using different methods: in vacuum forming, a vacuum is drawn through tiny holes in the mold. in pressure forming, air pressure is applied to the surface. thermoforming is mainly used in the packaging industry.
in this guide we aim to offer advice on design issues that need to be considered when designing plastic parts that are to be vacuum formed. the cost effective nature of vacuum forming ( thermoforming) is what makes this process the production method of choice for many plastics component manufacturers. however, as with any complex processes, it

1) what can vacuum forming make? the heated plastic takes on the shape of the mold underneath, giving endless possibilities of parts to make with a vacuum forming machine. 2) how does vacuum forming work? a thin plastic sheet is heated until it is formable. the plastic sheet is then stretched over the mold and takes the rough shape of the part.
