Limitless pattern designs for vacuum forming

JEC Europe 2015 - Condor introduces Crylview which offers the advantage of producing a wide range of patterns without changing the mould. 

Traditionally in vacuum forming, a mould is used to produce final parts in PMMA, ABS, PS, PETG, etc. To produce patterns, a new mould is needed while ensuring that the part can be unmoulded. Accordingly, different shapes require different moulds that can be very expensive, especially when a limited number of parts is to be produced. Moreover, the parts may break due to undercuts.

The benefit of Crylview is that it offers the advantage of producing a wide range of patterns without changing the mould. Here, the production depends on the sheet material, its thickness, the final product and the mould material (aluminium or composite). Once everything is set, patterns are limitless and each part can even be produced with a unique different pattern without having to change the mould – this also includes logos or letters in any language. Additionally, sheets can be reinforced exactly the same way as for polyurethane, fibreglass or epoxy. 3D effects are also possible where patterns can be embossed or debossed.
