When you need to heat plastic so it can be formed into usable parts, you can’t beat infrared heating. Using IR for thermoforming has many advantages including:

  • The ability to precisely control the amount of heat and to target that heat exactly where you want it.
  • IR comes up to the proper temperature rapidly and cools down quickly as well, eliminating heat overflow problems.
  • IR thermoforming saves energy as a result of the rapid heating and precision targeting.
  • Infrared Heaters are widely used on in roll-feed and in-line thermoforming applications
