The deep drawing or thermoforming of plastic films is the ideal process for producing thin-wall packaging that saves resources and can be disposed of in a space-saving manner.
The two-stage processing operation, film extrusion and subsequent moulding, offers many advantages over rival processes. Moderate tooling costs and a large degree of design freedom in terms of film structure are the most important plus points, in addition to the higher cycle rates.
The output capacity of modern thermoforming lines requires robot-assisted stacking technology.
The PP mesh is formed in a two-stage processing operation. The mesh structure saves up to 50 % plastic. The process is an important step in the area of sustainability, because the resource-saving packaging can be 100 % recycled.
