Vacuum forming finishing and trimming methods compared

Choosing the right trimming and finishing method is essential for the vacuum forming process. Failure to select the right one can affect the overall quality of the component, its longevity and ultimately how effective it is at doing the job for which it was intended. Having an understanding of different trimming methods can ensure customers are better informed when choosing a manufacturer of vacuum-formed components. After all, a company that doesn't offer a tailored solution is unlikely to deliver to the required standard.
