process begins with plastic material (roll stock or sheet) being transported into an oven for heating to a specific forming temperature.
The hot sheet is then indexed into a form station where a mating mold and pressure-box close on the sheet; trapped air is removed. The sheet containing the formed parts is then indexed into a trim station on the same machine or separate punch press where the formed parts are trimmed. The sheet web remaining after the formed parts are trimmed is typically wound onto a take-up reel or fed into an inline granulator for recycling.
