  • Does not require vacuum holes.
  • Can be useful for forming flat surfaces
  • Good for cavity inserts, where an outer aluminium frame is used
  • Highly cosmetic applications where finish is critical e.g. blister packaging
  • Lead time reduced because vacuum holes are eliminated
  • Computer aided design time shortened because there is no need to program tool paths for machining vacuum vents.
  • Faster draw (shorter forming cycles) because vacuum draw over entire surface
  • Heating and cooling times shortened because air is removed faster.
  • Faster forming because plastic remains within the ideal temperature range. The sheet is stretched evenly over the whole mould.
  • Tighter draw in complex shapes without a plug assist.
