The billet forming system from QuesTech Packaging (Newport News, VA) is a scrapless forming system that thermoforms containers in the melt phase. It offers benefits over conventional thermoforming, including uniform distribution of mono- or multi-layer material for consistent wall thicknesses.
Also containers don't show the reversion seen in standard thermoformed containers formed in the melt phase. Scrapless forming is said to have superb material utilization that lowers container costs particularly when expensive barrier materials are involved.
