A simple method of forming plastic by heating a plastic sheet to its ideal forming temperature and shaping the sheet over a mold or form. Once cooled, the formed part is removed from the mold and any secondary operations can proceed. Drape forming is perfect when a gradual bend is required for the part.
Drape Forming benefits include:
- Part thickness: .060-.50 inches
- Relatively in expensive tooling cost
- Beautiful gradual bends
- Great for large parts
