Confectionery & Food Packaging
Thermoforming is a manufacturing process for thermoplastic sheet or film. The sheet or film is heated between infrared, natural gas, or other heaters to its forming temperature. Then it is stretched over or into a temperature-controlled, single-surface mold. Cast or machined aluminum is the most common mold material, although epoxy and wood tooling are sometime used for low volume production. The sheet is held against the mold surface unit until cooled. The formed part is then trimmed from the sheet. The trimmed material is usually reground, mixed with virgin plastic, and reprocessed into usable sheet . There are several categories of thermoforming, including vacuum forming, pressure forming, twin-sheet forming, drape forming, free blowing, and simple sheet bending.
Thin and thick gauge thermoforming
There are two general thermoforming process categories. Sheet thickness less than 1.5 mm (0.060 inches) is usually delivered to the thermoforming press in rolls. Thin gauge roll fed thermoforming applications are dominated by rigid or semirigid disposable packaging. Sheet thickness greater than 3 mm (0.120 inches) is usually delivered to the forming press cut to final dimensions and stacked on pallets. Heavy or thick gauge, cut sheet thermoforming applications are primarily used as permanent structural components. There is a small but growing medium gauge market that forms sheet 1.5 mm to 3 mm in thickness.
Heavy gauge forming depended on convection oven heating of the sheet and draping of the sheet over male, female or paired molds. Aircraft windscreens and machine gun turret windows spurred the advance of heavy gauge forming technology during WWII. Heavy gauge parts are used as cosmetic surfaces on permanent structures such as automobiles, refrigerators, spas and shower enclosures, and electrical and electronic equipment.

Thermoforming and Vacuum Pressure Forming Product Range
Thermoforming and vacuum forming equipment forms thermoplastic sheets or films over molds into finished shapes. First, the thermoplastic sheet or film is heated with electric, infrared, or natural gas heaters. Next, the thermoplastic material is stretched over a temperature-controlled, single-surface, aluminum mold. When the thermoplastic film is cooled, the formed part is trimmed from the sheet. Typically, the unused trim is reprocessed for subsequent use. There are several basic types of thermoforming and vacuum forming equipment. Pressure forming equipment applies a flow of positive air pressure between the mold’s surface and the thermoplastic sheet or film. Vacuum forming equipment applies negative air pressure between the mold and thermoplastic. Twin-sheet forming equipment combines two thermoplastic sheets into a uniform part. Drape forming equipment is used to produce parts with a gradual bend. Thermoforming and vacuum forming equipment that uses free blowing or simple-sheet bending techniques are also available.
Selecting thermoforming and vacuum forming equipment requires an analysis of product specifications, features, and approvals. Thermoformer product specifications include: forming area, depth of draw, sheet width, material thickness range, machine dimensions, machine height, and air pressure. Air consumption, power consumption, main supply voltage, knife length, and clamping force are additional parameters to consider when selecting thermoforming machines. Typically, product output rates are measured in pieces per minute or pieces per hour. Some thermoformers feature robotic part handling, horizontal stacking, or multi-zone heaters. Others include a pneumatic or mechanical roll lift. A thermoforming machine with quick tool-change capabilities and a programmable logic controller (PLC) is a good choice for many applications. In terms of approvals, thermoforming and vacuum forming equipment often bears marks from organizations such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or the Canadian Standards Association (CSA).
Thermoforming and vacuum forming equipment use two basic types of thermoplastic materials: thin-gauge and thick-gauge. Thin-gauge thermoplastics are delivered in rolls and have a thickness less than 1.5 mm. Thick-gauge thermoplastics are delivered as stackable sheets that vary in thickness between 1.5 mm and 3 mm. Thin-gauge materials are used to produce rigid or semi-rigid parts for applications such as disposable packaging. Thick-gauge or heavy-gauge materials are used in automotive, consumer products, and electrical enclosure applications. Specialized processes such as twin-sheet forming are used to produce hollow or double-walled parts. Typically, thermoforming equipment is used with plastics such as acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer (ABS), high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), high density polyethylene (HDPE), high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), and polyethylene terphthalate modified with CHDM (PETG).
Blister pack is a term for several types of pre-formed clear plastic packaging used for small consumer goods.
The two primary components of a blister pack are a pre-formed plastic blister and a printed paperboard card which has a heat-seal coating.
Blister packs are commonly used as unit-dose packaging for pharmaceutical dosage forms such as tablets, capsules or lozenges. Blister packs can provide barrier protection for shelf life requirements, and a degree of protection where product tampering is a consideration. In the USA, blister packs are mainly used for packing physician samples of drug products or for the sale of Over The Counter (OTC) products in the pharmacy. In other parts of the world, blister packs are the main packaging type since pharmacy dispensing and re-packaging are not common. A series of blister cavities is sometimes called a blister card or blister strip as well as blister pack. In some parts of the world the blister pack is known as a Push-Through-Pack (PTP). Main advantages of unit-dose blister packs over other methods of packing pharmaceutical products are the assurance of product/packaging integrity (including shelflife) of each individual dose and the possibility to create a compliance pack or calendar pack by printing the days of the week above each dose.
Blister packs are created by means of a form-fill-seal process at the pharmaceutical company or designated contract packer. A form-fill-seal process means that the blister pack is created from rolls of flat sheet or film, filled with the pharmaceutical product and closed (sealed) on the same equipment. Such equipment is called a blisterline.
Blister packs comprise of two principle components : 1) a formed base web creating the cavity inside which the product fits and 2) the lidding foil for dispensing the product out of the pack. There are 2 types of forming the cavity into a base web sheet: thermoforming and cold forming.
Other types of blister packs consist of carded packaging where goods such as toys, hardware, and electrical items are contained in between a specially made paperboard and clear pre-formed plastic such as PVC. The PVC, transparent so the item can be seen and examined easily, is vacuum-formed around a mold so it can contain the item snugly, and have room to be opened upon purchase. The card is brightly coloured and designed depending on the item inside, and the PVC is affixed to the card using heat and pressure to activate an adhesive (heat seal coating) on the blister card. The adhesive is strong enough so that the pack may hang on a peg, but weak enough so that this way one can tear open the joint and access the item. Sometimes with large items the card has a perforated window for access.
A more secure package called a clamshell. This is used for theft-prone items like consumer electronics and consists of two pre-formed plastic sheets mated together or one sheet folded over onto itself and sealed together at the edges. These are often intentionally very hard to open by hand, to deter tampering and pilfering. A pair of scissors or even a sharp knife is often required to open them. Care must be used to safely open some of these packages.
