Thermoforming is a manufacturing process, where the package is made at the same time the product is packaged. The film, as a packaging material, is heated up to the forming temperature and formed with the help of air and vacuum in a special mould, gaining the form needed for the package of the product.
In the process of thermoforming, the package is made with the same machine, where at the same time the product is loaded. It is possible to synchronize thermoforming machines with other devices, for example, with labeller, which straight after the sealing of packages sticks a label on them.
The technology of thermoforming can be used for packing small parties of food, as well as the part of a big process of product packaging.Watch thermoforming process performed by SCANDIVAC machine
