Vacuum forming is a simplified version of thermoforming, which is one of the oldest and most popular methods of processing plastic material. The process involves the heating of a plastic sheet until it is soft and then draping it over a mould. A vacuum is applied to suck the sheet onto the mould and then the sheet is removed from the mould leaving the sheet in the desired shape.
