Drape forming is a technique that uses a single positive mold on which a heated sheet of plastic is placed. After thermal processing softens that sheet, it sags and conforms to the shape of the mold under its own weight or by slight pressure applied by an operator. Check out examples of our drape forming here.
Why choose drape forming when heat forming plastic?
Save money: Drape forming tooling is cost effective for many low-volume projects.
Transparency: Use drape forming when your part needs to be optically clear.
Consistency: Drape forming generally doesn’t stretch the plastic, so your part maintains a consistent thickness.
