Vacuum thermoforming machine

Description

The machine is designed for vacuum forming of various elements of thermoplastic plates such as: PP, PET, PS, HIPS, EPS, PLA, PVC, PMMA, KYDEX, etc.

The thermoforming machine works in automatic mode with the possibility of accelerating or slowing down the process during processing. The machine is controlled by a control panel with a PLC touch screen by DELTA. Thanks to PLC control, we are able to define individual times of each cycle of the forming process, which will allow us to repeat the inserts without the use of temperature sensors.

The operation is limited to putting on the material, closing the frame and pressing the START button. The machine uses a 16 m3 vacuum pump. The material is heated by infrared heaters. The main heating takes place through the upper furnace with additional air heating under the formed element. The SSR semiconductor relays are responsible for the operation of the heating system. Movable elements move with the use of pneumatic actuators by Pneumat, on linear guides by Hiwin. Pneumax solenoid valves are responsible for dosing the vacuum and compressed air. The machine is equipped with a thermoplastic release system and a pre-blowing system. The template placement function facilitates the assembly of the form placement. With the help of the reduction frame, we are able to reduce the working area of ​​the machine.

Welded steel structure, powder coated.
