When a heating device heats the material along the line where you want to bend it, the device heats up a metal line then when the plastic is hot you can bend it to a specific angle. Ideal for- making picture fames, pencil holders etc.. Acrylic sheets are usually used for this.
the vacuum sucks out all the air and sucks a sheet of heated thermoplastic onto the product, so the sheet is moulded into its shape. Used for- yogart pots, casing, containers.
it uses a two part mould, to make simple hollow objects like containers for liquids. 1. There is a mould with the plastic/glass placed inside it 2.Aim is blowed into the material so it blows out to fit the mould 3. You take the mould off and the material is shaped
It is ideal for making simple, regular shaped items like guttering, drain pipes etc.. Which can be cut to a suitable length. There are plastic granules funneld into a mould which is placed in a heater, so the plastic melts into shape, then it is also died.
Plastic granules are poured into a funnel which leads to a mould in a heater so the plastic heats up then while heated gets injected into a mould. This is for making more detailed and complex components like model kits, seats, and film canisters
