Pressure Forming

Pressure forming is similar to vacuum forming, but it uses high-pressure air assist to create significantly better part definition.

In many cases, pressure formed parts can even be made with a finish comparable to that of an injection molded part.

Advantages of Pressure Forming:

  • The appearance of injection molding with much lower tooling cost; ideal for applications that require injection-molded appearance but lack the volume to make injection-molded tooling cost-effective
  • Surface texture can be applied directly from mold
  • Ability to incorporate numbers, letters and logos
  • Higher forming pressure means fine, detailed parts
