What Is Heavy Gauge Plastic Thermoforming?
The process of transforming a flat sheet of plastic into a three-dimensional functional form is called heavy gauge thermoforming (or heavy gauge plastic thermoforming). The plastic sheets are first heated; then, using either a vacuum press or pressure, they are formed into a mold so that they take the shape desired by the customer.
Heavy gauge thermoforming is excellent for large parts and permanent structural components, especially those that must withstand high levels of stress. The parts can be used either indoors or out, depending on customer specifications. Heavy gauge thermoforming can also be used when it is necessary to create multiple parts and not cost-effective to use injection molding.
Because this type of custom thermoforming is so flexible, it is suitable for a wide variety of applications. Heavy gauge plastic thermoforming can be used to create everything from totes and bins to pallets, truck components, fitness equipment, agricultural components, guards and bezels, housings, and more.
