Occupying minimum floor space, Formech’s FMDH provides a cost effective solution for extrusion manufactures to quality control sheet material up to 10mm thick.
Twin multi-zone heaters provide powerful performance and consistent results with the most demanding materials. With the forming capabilities of much larger industrial production machines, the FMDH is the perfect tool for proofing design concepts, prototyping and pre-production runs across a wide range of materials and applications.
- 7'' Colour HMI/PLC featuring Formech Cycle View (FCV)
Wago control system with 7" colour touch screen, real time adjustments, 1% heater increment control, Formech Cycle View and 40 preset memories.
- Twin Heaters
Top and bottom heaters to form demanding materials and decrease cycle times (6 zones top heater, 6 zones bottom heater).
- Ceramic Heaters
Ceramic heaters are well suited for high volume production when heaters are engaged for long periods and constant temperature must be maintained.
- Electric Heater Drive
Electrically powered heater travel for convenient operation. Controlled speed and braking prevents damage to elements.
Pre-stretch enables the user to pump air into the heated sheet, creating a bubble to avoid thinning of material with deeper tools.
Avoids material sag during the heating cycle and maintains an even distance between heater and sheet whilst providing the user with an audible indication the material is ready to form.
- Vacuum & Pressure Gauges
A visual indication of consistent vacuum and pressure being applied (pressure in Hg / bar).
- Dry rotary vane pump 16m3 / hr
