Oven Forming

Brimar uses oven forming when a plastic part requires a more general, or gradual bend than heat bending processes can provide. It works well on both large and small parts.

 

A male mould is produced with the desired curve for item to be formed. Thinner material may be placed in the mould while it is cold and both the mould and material are heated to forming temperature. Once the material and mould have been returned to room temperature, the material will retain the shape of the mould.

 

If thicker material is required, it is heated to forming temperature, then placed in a mould and clamped in place.  After is has cooled, it retains the shape of the mould.
