Kapsto Header Thermoform Verfahren

The thermoforming process: Optimal for large-format protection solutions.

In the thermoforming process, a plastic sheet is heated in order to form it in the mold using a vacuum. The formed parts can then be separated from the sheet using a cutting tool. Pöppelmann KAPSTO® manufactures the rolls of plastic in-house and is able to process an uncommonly wide range of materials and colors. In addition to these benefits, the thermoforming process also enables the production of particularly thin-walled article series.
