With heat and pressure, the tip is reactivated and the materials (upper, toe and lining) adhere and are stretched one on top of the other without defects. Once reactivated, the upper is released. The operator unloads it from the heated station and loads it on the cooled station, the fixing clamps hold the upper and the shaping cycle begins: the shaped synthetic strip descends on the cold mold stretching the upper and making it adhere to the aluminum mold. The upper is now shaped and stabilized. At the end of the set time, it is released while the mold returns to the initial position to allow unloading and the new cycle.
