This book provides plastics engineers with an up-to-date source of both basic and advanced engineering principles involved in thermoforming. It also shows how to apply these concepts in modern thermoforming practice. The author develops the technology of thermoforming by first considering the interaction of the plastic sheet with heating and. General: Thermoforming is a method of manufacturing plastic parts by preheating a flat sheet of plastic, then bringing it into contact with a mold whose shape it takes. This can be done by vacuum, pressure, and/or direct mechanical force. The process offers close tolerances, tight specifications, and sharp detail. In the area of plastics packaging, thermoforming is unrivaled as a processing method. This popular and unparalleled book has been comprehensively extended and revised in its second edition. New topics include thermoforming tools, decoration in thermoforming, and energy usage in thermoforming. Thermoforming is a manufacturing process in which thermoplastic sheets are heated, softened, clamped onto a mold, and made to conform to the shape of the mold or forming tool. It is ideally suited to large-volume runs of small items.
