Do you require Vacuum and Pressure Forming Services in San Diego?

Vacuum forming is a popular and affordable way to produce plastic parts of all shapes and sizes. Basically how this process works is the heat sensitive plastic that is being shaped is heated to an extremely hot temperature so that it becomes formable. Then using a pre-made mold made of aluminum the plastic is shaped into the desired form. This process can be optimized depending on the plastic shape that is required. Using a vacuum air pressure the thermoplastic is pressed against the mold until it takes shape, the difference in air pressure is what causes the plastic to be molded.

Pressure Forming is similar to vacuum forming because it is a process of forming thermo heated plastic into various shapes and figures. However, pressure forming is different because it allows for more detail to be pressed into the plastic that is being formed. By using varying air pressures different textures and engraving can be pressed into the plastic. This makes for almost unlimited design possibilities in the world of plastic manufacturing. Although Pressure Forming is not nearly as cost efficient, as Vacuum forming it is still a great choice for developing high-end custom products.
