What is Thermoforming?

Thermoforming is the process of heating material, commonly thermo-plastic until it can be molded to the desired form. This is most commonly achieved through pressure forming, vacuum forming, or mechanical forming. The applications of thermoforming are vast and include food packaging, industrial, medical, and e-commerce industries.
Thermoforming has several advantages. One of its main draws is that it is very adaptable to a customer’s design needs. With a fast turnaround time, it can be used for last-minute shipments or as a quick way to develop a prototype.

Plastic Thermoforming

There are two main types of plastic thermoforming: vacuum forming and pressure forming. Like all types of thermoforming, vacuum forming uses heat and pressure to manipulate plastic sheets over a mold. Once the sheet has been positioned, a vacuum is used to form it into its desired shape.
Like vacuum forming, pressure forming uses heat to ensure the plastic sheet is in a malleable form but has the added benefit of additional pressure. This pressure allows for greater detail and texture to be created during the forming process.

Paper Forming

Similar to plastic forming, paper trays, plates, and other products can be formed into the desired shape. Using heat, pressure, and moisture content from the paper sheet a product can be formed into a desired shape and rigidity.

Markets

The uses for thermoformed goods are almost unlimited. Most common is packaging, including packaging for food and consumer goods. Due to the nature of thermoforming and the variety of weight in thermoplastics, these techniques are equally applicable to creating rigid packaging as they are for disposable medical processing equipment.
BMG Thermoforming Solutions provide flexible and cost-effective methods for creating a huge variety of products. Some examples include meat trays with absorbent pads, egg cartons, salad bowls, plant propagation trays, plant retail trays, sterile surgical device packaging, medical component trays, parts processing trays and so much more.
At BMG we work with our customers to ensure their product goals are met and are always looking to work on new and exciting projects.

SERVO EJECTOR

The Brown Servo Ejector Unit provides more production flexibility for thermoformers. Changes can be made to the ejection parameters through the HMI on the fly without having to shut the machine down, and product trimming can function in three different modes of operation.

The unit allows you to:

  • Short eject product on every stroke to remove the product from the trim die, or
  • Short eject product on every stroke with an additional swing through long ejection for counter capabilities, or
  • Swing through long eject product only for high speed applications with counter capabilities.

Parameter changes for acceleration, deceleration and ejection length are made at the operator interface. The long stroke method allows the machine to eject parts in stacks of a preset quantity, eliminating the need for a separate handling operation. Two platen-mounted linear bearing assemblies guide the unit for smooth actuation. Segen cylinders are available within the ejector platen to facilitate quick change.
