Thermoforming

Thermoforming involves a plastic sheet being heated to a pliable pre-defined  temperature, forming it into  a mould to produce the desired end product. Constant, accurate thermal data is vital in the thermoforming process to ensure that the finished product is correctly formed, and is of the necessary quality.

Low forming temperatures can produce badly formed or partially formed products, while too much heat causes blistering and can affect the colour and gloss of the finished product. 

Accurate measurement of the plastic sheet temperature as it exits the oven provides essential temperature data for the heating control system, enabling efficient control of the thermal profile of the process. This supports quality control for a consistent product.
