Forming of Plastic parts is the process of heating to mould the part into a specfc shape. IPF use vacuum & drape forming, blowing, pressing and line bending techniques, providing a wide variety of parts with a minimum of tooling costs.
Also known as thermoforming, is the process of heating an acrylic sheet to a set temperature, then placing over a mold for it to be drawn through with a vacuum, allowing the sheet to take shape, then slowly cooled, and released, set in the shape required.
IPF offer this process of heating acrylic to forming temperature, and draping over a cold mold to take its shape.
A method of forming a sharp bend in plastic sheet. The radius of the bend can be controlled by adjusting the width of the heated area.
Clamping heated acrylic sheet onto a mold and applying compressed air. This method can be reversed by drawing the sheet into a chamber using vacuum pressure
