Why you Should Consider a Thermoforming Machine for your Packaging & Products

Posted by AMAC

Americans are in a hurry. We have a great appreciation for all things that can be accomplished quickly and efficiently, and such is our need for plastic recyclable items. Having a party? Grab the plastic forks, plates, and cups. Simple and easy. Need to bring a treat to work? Stop by the grocery store and you will find an array of ready to eat treats all neatly and conveniently packaged in recyclable plastic. Plastic makes our life simpler. So if you are a manufacturer of food, medical, or any other retail products you should consider a thermoforming machine for your packaging needs.

What is a Thermoforming Machine?

Thermoforming machines are industrial machines that mold and manipulate either thin or thick gauge plastic to create plastic products consumers use daily. Thin gauge plastic creates items like solo cups, containers, lids, plastic packaging and more. Thick gauge plastic creates items like truck bed liners, plastic planting pots, and even your car dash board. A thermoforming machine has the ability to mold plastic into about anything your imagination can dream up.

Important Thermoforming Equipment Characteristics

Thermoforming machines have been around for quite some time so there are a variety of products on the market. Today’s machines can be highly versatile because of advanced computer technology. With a newer machine you gain more process control especially when you have repeat jobs. Such machines also have features that alert operators if something has not processed properly. This alone can save product mistakes and possible machine down time for resets.

Other important features to look for in a thermoforming machine include:

  • Manual or Automatic Processing
  • Sterilized & Sanitary Surface for Medical Products
  • Fast Cycle Times
  • Reduced Mold Change Times

There are many things to consider when selecting a thermoforming machine. How many processes will it be used for? How simple is it to program or change from job to job? Is there a trial cycle period to test and approve the product before running a complete production? There are so many things to consider when selecting a machine, it is always best to defer to an expert thermoforming machine manufacturer.
