What exactly is thermoforming anyway?

Thermoforming is a cost-effective manufacturing process LINDAR uses to shape and form the plastic we use to make everything from food containers and paint trays to OEM parts for equipment and machinery.

Here’s how it works: A plastic sheet is heated in an oven to a high-enough temperature that it can be stretched into or onto a customized mold and cooled to a finished shape. Excess plastic is then trimmed from the edges and a usable part or product is created.

At LINDAR, we use both in-line and cut sheet thermoforming processes to produce even the most elaborate products, and meet exact design specifications.
