Thermoforming is used for shaping thermoplastic materials. The main advantage of this technique lies in its extensive field of application: The special properties of foams, non-woven fabrics and plastics make it possible to create various shapes. Compound products, such as foams with fabric or foams with plastic, can also be easily processed. The final shape of the product is created by tools etched from aluminium.
A&R Textil uses a so-called portal milling machine to create the tools for the press itself. This makes it possible to implement very complex requirements and to meet the customers’ detailed wishes in the shortest of times.
