Thermoforming represents a cost and resource efficient method for the production of plastic parts. To ensure an economic production a high degree of process stability is necessary. The basis for this is an exact material characterization/selection, advanced machine technology as well as their optimum interaction. The current works at Fraunhofer AVV focus on the analyzis, description and optimization of machine-technical solutions.
