ProThermo Thin Gauge

Thin Sheet Thermoforming is one of the most common processes for making a wide variety of consumer and industrial plastic parts.

It’s also one of the fastest growing of the plastics manufacturing industries and employs thousands of personnel. While simple in concept, thermoforming is a complex process requiring knowledgeable and skilled personnel at all levels in the plant. Thin sheet thermoforming is also known as “thin gauge thermoforming” and “roll-fed thermoforming.”
