Seat Pan Insert

Vacuum Forming Process Used to Manufacture Seat Pan Insert We thermoformed this seat pan insert for the Aerospace Industry using the Vacuum Forming Process.  To form this part we used an engineered resin, Lexan F6000. Thus, we had much the same processing requirements as for the Radel® material used in the Shroud Headrest part. Next, we form this part using a […]
