manufactured using the single-sheet process allow
nearly unlimited individuality when it comes to
material, shape and size.
For production of single-sheet thermoformed parts,
DUROtherm has 24 thermoforming systems manufactured
by leading companies in a variety of sizes. When it
comes to mould size, DUROtherm is also a decisive
step ahead of the competition.
With one of the largest
thermoforming systems in Europe, we can manufacture
huge thermoformed parts, up to 4200 x 2500 mm in
In the single sheet process, a firmly clamped plastic panel is first heated on both sides. While the mold is raised into position, compressed air is used to pre-stretch the hot sheet. The air between the mold and the sheet of plastic is then evacuated and atmospheric pressure causes the sheet to conform to the mold. Afterward a cooling fan cools the
thermoformed component to below the softening point of the plastic. A flow of compressed air released the finished
thermoformed part from the mold.
