ROCKLEDGE, Fla., July 21 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- LRM Industries International, Inc., headquartered in Rockledge, Florida, announces the invention of TSD Twin Sheet Direct™; a new innovative production process, extending the product value of its patent-pending STF Sheetless ThermoForming™ technology, which was invented and commercialized by LRM in 2007.

LRM Industries InternationalTSD Twin Sheet Direct™ thermoforming uses existing traditional twin sheet thermoforming molds to produce very large dual-layer structural or hollow thermoformed products in a totally automated process. There is one major process difference from existing twin sheet thermoforming: no pre-manufactured thermoplastic sheet is required.

The molds are "coated" with molten thermoplastic material directly from extrusion in a profiled lay-down, and then joined to form the product. This means that no ovens are needed, and the process of stretching "softened" thermoplastic sheets inducing stress and thickness non-uniformity is eliminated.

According to Dr. Dale E. Polk, LRM's Chief Technology Officer, "When we developed STF Sheetless ThermoForming two years ago, we were surprised to learn that no one had achieved thermoforming using molten plastic from extrusion. This new TSD Twin Sheet Direct thermoforming is a logical extension of STF and adds a whole new dimension of product possibilities to our innovative new STF Line."

A wide range of thermoplastic polymers can be used to produce products with TSD Twin Sheet Direct™, and, of course, the process allows on-site, closed loop recycling capability.
