Jos-Tech, Inc. begins each project by identifying which plastic thermoforming process will meet a customer’s budget and quality criteria.
Vacuum Forming is the leading thermoforming process in which sheet plastic is heated and formed over a mold by removing air from the area between the mold surface and the sheet. Molds can be created from aluminum, wood, or epoxy. The mold type is only dependent on the finished product design requirements.
A wide material range makes vacuum forming a wise choice for many applications. Materials are selected based on the performance requirements.
