Thermoforming is a technique that is widely used all over the world for the making of plastic molds that can be utilized to make usable products. Thermoforming is the technique and t can be used even in a small scale manner with just a suction and heat source. Or on the other hand, it can also be utilized in the big industrial sectors where huge burners, with temperature control system are used to melt the plastic and then big vacuum machines are used to stretch and put it against a mold.

All in all, it is more or less a very cost effective method and now largely all plastic products all over the world are made according to this technique. The final result of the thermoforming technique depends much on the type of mold that is used to make the final plastic products. Wood patterns, cast aluminum and machined aluminum molds, composite molds etc are used to make the products. The composite molds are generally considered to be the cheapest as they are made with the resins which are soft at first and then harden with time.

It is also widely used in the engineering segments. There are variations of the thin gauge thermoforming, which is basically used for making small items like paper cups, caps, disposable bottles etc and the other more complicated thermoforming, used for bigger molds. They are different from rotational molds etc because here the application of the heat, in correct temperature is of utmost importance. After it has cooled down, the mold is removed from within.

It can be said that with the advent of technology, this technique of thermoforming will be developed in the future in a much better way and give us better plastic products in future.
