Vacuum forming is a process in which a sheet of plastic is heated to an optimal temperature, stretched onto a mold, and forced against the mold by a vacuum. It is an ideal solution when large parts or complex shapes are needed.
Vacuum forming is a process where material is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product. Vacuum forming is often used for parts with complex shapes like packaging trays or medical bedding components.
