Vacuum forming

Vacuum forming

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A simple visualization of the forming process.
Vacuum forming, commonly known as vacuforming, is a simplified version of thermoforming, whereby a sheet of plastic is heated to a forming temperature, stretched onto or into a single-surface mold, and held against the mold by applying vacuum between the mold surface and the sheet. The vacuum forming process can be used to make most product packaging, speaker casings and even car dashboards.

Normally, draft angles must be present in the design on the mold (a recommended minimum of 3°), otherwise release of the formed plastic and the mold is very difficult.
Vacuum forming is usually – but not always – restricted to forming plastic parts that are rather shallow in depth. A thin sheet is formed into rigid cavities for unit doses of pharmaceuticals and for loose objects that are carded or presented as point-of-purchase items. Thick sheet is formed into permanent objects such as turnpike signs and protective covers.
Relatively deep parts can be formed if the form-able sheet is mechanically or pneumatically stretched prior to bringing it in contact with the mold surface and before vacuum is applied.[1]
Suitable materials for use in vacuum forming are conventionally thermoplastics, the most common and easiest being High Impact Polystyrene Sheeting (HIPS). This is molded around a wood, structural foam or cast/machined aluminum mold and can form to almost any shape. Vacuum forming is also appropriate for transparent materials such as acrylic which are widely used in applications for aerospace such as passenger cabin window canopies for military fixed wing aircraft and "bubbles" for rotary wing aircraft.

ABS BODYKIT !! Why choose ABS ??

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) plastic

ABS adalah bahan terbaik dalam industri Bodykit yang dihasilkan secara VACUUM FORMING.
"oklah, kira ketiga terbaik selepas PP dan CARBON FIBER"

NO 1 - CARBON FIBER
NO 2 - PP
NO 3 - ABS
NO 4 - PU
NO 5 - FIBERGLASS

Ia mempunyai daya tahan Impact yang tinggi,
tak mudah pecah dan retak (bukan tak boleh pecah ya) .
Ia mempunyai daya tahan Heat Resistance yang tinggi,
tak akan kembang, bengkak atau rengang. (kecuali dibakar hidup hidup! )
Ia lebih Ringan berbanding bahan Fiberglass (FRP) dan PolyUrethane (PU). (terbukti !! )

Lebih senang dicat, sebab
i) permukaan lebih smooth.
ii) tak beralun, lebih sekata.
iii) asalnya warna putih, so color tak lari daripada body color.

Yang Paling BEST ni ialah, I jual sama harga dengan bodykit PU kat market.

Bumper kereta pulak biasanya diperbuat daripada Polypropylene (PP). Warna materialnya
ialah warna hitam, that's why you akan nampak perbezaan color yang ketara antara body dengan bumper.

Nak bezakan ABS dengan PU dan Fiber ??
Material color ABS ialah warna putih.
Material color PU ialah hitam.
Material color FRP ialah hitam berdebu putih.
Kesemua pengeluar kereta akan mengunakan original bodykit yang berasaskan ABS untuk 'add-on' model-model mereka. Walaupun harganya lebih mahal pun tak apa, sebab harga cost mereka dah diserap ke harga jualan mereka. Siapa yang kena ? Pembeli la yang kena !
