These forming concepts involve the use of traditional metal working techniques which are new to the field of thermoplastic part production. The various solid-phase forming processes, thermoplastic materials suitable to these methods, part design, advantages and disadvantages of the processes, equipment and tooling requirements, processing effects on part properties, production economics and suggested applications suitable to these techniques are described.
