Plastic thermoformers work similarly to metal stamping applications and form parts out of thin heated pieces of sheet plastic instead of metal. Whether a thermoformer is sheet fed or roll fed, by applying Helm Force Transducers to critical areas of the machine the process may be monitored for:

  • Machine Protection
  • Tool Protection
  • Detect Misfeed and Doubles
  • Ensure Product Quality
