This year, EuroMold is set to present new innovations along the entire thermoforming process chain. The process, which involves the heating and forming of thermoplastics, distinguishes itself due to its low material costs. It is highly economical especially for small and medium-sized production series. Through the use of pressure, vacuum, or mechanics in combination with a molding tool, the plastic arrives at its desired shape.
While such processes have traditionally been used to produce packaging, such as chocolate box trays, utensil trays, or yoghurt cups, thermoforming also finds its application in the production of mudguards, dashboards, bathtubs and casings. The ability to alter shape, colour,
and function is what is making thermoforming increasingly popular.
Dr Eberhard Döring, CEO of DEMAT, the organiser of EuroMold, stated: "Thermoforming makes it possible to connect different processes and to promote new perspectives and insights. Production processes play a crucial role when it comes to turning ideas into reality. The finished product has to meet the desired requirements concerning quality, cost efficiency and quantity. Thermoforming offers solutions that meet these requirements and it presents itself as a promising future method of production."
The thermoforming center in Hall 9.0 demonstrates the innovative and diverse applications of this forward-looking technology by presenting the newest products and developments along the entire chain of the thermoforming process. It highlights diverse solutions and benefits for different sectors of the industry. Visitors will be able to experience the innovative power of thermoforming machines directly at EuroMold.
