A novel curved decorative vacuum system is developed in this paper. In order to enhance the efficiency of the curved decorative vacuum system process a programmable controller is applied to being as man and machine interface. The programmable controller also can be a pressure detector and electromagnetic switches. By using a pneumatic component drive, the film material printed with pattern is heated to its softening point. Then the image film in the surface of plastic or metal products can be formed with threedimensional surface decoration effect by atmospheric pressure. This surface of product will have excellent visual and tactile by using this system. Another advantage is that this design can save much energy because the proposed process in this paper applies the vacuum forming technology to the secondary processing of the curved work.
