Thermoforming is a manufacturing process where a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, formed to a specific shape in a mould, and trimmed to create a usable product. This technique is widely used in the packaging industry to create a variety of items, including blister packs, clamshells, and trays for a wide range of products.
The process begins with heating the plastic sheet until it becomes soft and malleable. It is then stretched onto or into a mould and cooled to a finished shape. The final phase involves trimming the formed sheet to provide a uniform finish. Thermoforming is noted for its cost-effectiveness, versatility, and efficiency, making it a popular choice for custom and large-scale packaging solutions.
Thermoformed packaging is commonly used for food, pharmaceuticals, and consumer products due to its durability, lightweight nature, and ability to create airtight seals. This method offers design flexibility and rapid prototyping, which is advantageous for industries requiring custom packaging solutions.
