“Hybrid thermoforming” development project

Hybrid thermoforming of large-area metal-plastic composites

Together with its partners, KROH Kunststofftechnik GmbH, Bisingen, has developed a novel thermoforming process for the production-efficient manufacture of metal-plastic hybrid components. This joint project has focussed on researching the hybrid thermoforming of large-format components with thermal discharge properties.

Hybrid thermoforming stands for a combined thermoforming and joining process in which a metal insert is positioned in the forming tool and positively connected to the thermoformed plastic component during thermoforming.

The new process allows particularly high-performance technical thermoformed components to be produced without the need for extensive finishing.
