Time-Dependent Temperature Distribution of Sheets in the Stage of Storing
Obtaining a uniform thickness of the final product using thermoforming is difficult, and the thickness distribution depends strongly on the distribution of the sheet temperature. In this paper, the time-dependent temperature distribution of the total sheets in the stage of storing was studied using the analysis code which has been verified based on the experimental data. It was found out that the time for storing should be managed for decreasing the temperature difference between the sheets. The time-dependent temperature distribution of the total sheets and the method for analysis in this study will be used to improve the quality of the final products.
