Thermoforming is the process that involves heating a flat sheet of plastic until it is soft enough to mold. Once it reaches the correct temperature, the sheet advances to the form section. After the sheet is formed, it is then pulled into the mold with a vacuum. The plastic hardens and forms the desired part, which is then trimmed and inspected for quality.
