These Bassinets are polycarbonate sheets that have been dried overnight and then vacuum-formed over a mould to make the shape as seen.
A clear polycarbonate (PC) material is used for the bassinet. This material allows for a seamless design, important for preventing bacteria from living in the warm crevices of the bassinet.
A thermoforming machine melts the PC material to make it flexible, enabling it to conform to the mould. The melted PC is then laid over the mould and a vacuum pulls the PC sheet into place. The bassinet is then cooled and removed from the machine, and the edges are trimmed.
