Technologies and processes

Vacuum Forming

Vacuum Forming, is a thermoforming process able to transform sheets of different colors and plastic materials (ABS, PP, HDPE, PS, Noryl, ABS + PMMA etc.), into highly complex technical parts, by means of vacuum suction systems.

Capable of serving various industrial segments such as trucks, buses, cars, agro vehicles, refrigeration, construction and mining machinery, the Vacuum Forming process produces bumpers, fairings, covers, panels, protections and many other parts, which efficiently fulfill stricter product performance requirements, in terms of dimensional, design, weather resistance (UV radiation), durability and many other requirements.

In the Vacuum Forming process, the plastic sheet is positioned in the frame of the thermoforming machine, where it will be heated uniformly by electrical resistances. Then, by means of vacuum suction, the material adheres to the molding surface and takes on its shape. After cooling, the plastic part is removed from the forming structure and finalized with finishing procedures such as cutting and painting, according to the specifications of each project.
