Abstract : The report describes a process for vacuum-forming thin sheets of plastic material into control and display panel mockups. The description includes techniques for fabricating controls and annunciators plus requirements for drawings, tools, equipment, and materials. The vacuum-forming process, which is well established in the plastics industry for fabricating parts in large quantities, is fast and inexpensive. In this report, the fabrication of a typical mock-up panel is used to illustrate the vacuum-forming process. (Author)
