Thermoforming is a manufacturing process widely used in for the packaging of consumer products and to fabricate large items such as bathtubs, contoured skylights, and internal door liners for refrigerators. The process consists of two main steps: heating and forming. The process involves heating a plastic sheet to a pliable forming temperature, forming it to a specific shape in a mold, and then trimming it in order to create a usable product.
