The process itself is relatively simple and involves the heating of sheets of plastic until they become malleable and can be moulded into a variety of components. How is this process right for use in the agricultural sector and what advantage does it provide?
Thermoformed plastic parts are ideal for agricultural applications due to their long lasting and hard-wearing properties which makes them suited to long, difficult outdoor work.
Throughout the years, thermoformed plastic parts have been utilised in a number of agricultural applications such as:
On top of the wide variety of agricultural applications, thermoformed plastic parts and components come with a range of sector specific advantages that make them invaluable for use in agriculture.
One of the main advantages specifically suited to the agricultural sector is the versatility offered by various plastics such as polycarbonate and ABS. The range of plastics available means that several parts can be produced from certain plastics suited to a specific application.
The plastic use will obviously depend on the application required and it is essential to analyse the benefits of each plastic in relation to the application before beginning the thermoforming process.
Another huge benefit of thermoformed plastics, especially when designing agricultural plastic components, is the fact that size is not an issue.
It will come as no surprise that large equipment and parts are a necessity in agriculture and the thermoforming process can easily accommodate these larger parts and components as well as smaller applications. This versatility is what is enabling thermoforming to be the process of choice for agricultural businesses along with the high quality finish that is offered.
Whilst we have discussed the specific benefits thermoforming can provide to the agricultural sector, there are several overarching benefits that the thermoforming process provides which make it the ideal choice for manufacturing plastic components.
The specific advantages of the thermoforming process involve aspects such as:
