In this paper it is analyzed a product machined at the S.C. ULMA PACKAGING S.A. company, which is a “Thermoforming mold” used in order to obtain plastic containers in which the food or non-food product is packed, making part of a thermoforming machine called TFS 200. The aims of this paper are to determine the optimal technological parameters and to study the effects of the DFM principles and the optimal tool path strategy usage on manufacturing time of the “Thermoforming mold”. A redesign of the thermoforming mold is presented based on the failed rules and recommendations given by the DFM program and followed by the analysis of the DFM’s benefic effect on the manufacturing time.
