Vacuum Forming Machines

A popular choice for film and theatre set designers, universities, automotive and aerospace R&D departments the 1372 offers a powerful combination of large forming area and wide forming capabilities at a very attractive price.

An extensive range of options including automation, heating, cooling, control and vacuum reservoir marks the 1372 as a highly versatile and adaptable machine.  A heating zone and control upgrade facilitates precise heating profiles suited to advanced engineering plastics.

  • 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.
  • Quartz Heaters with Variable Standby
    Quartz heaters have the benefit of a rapid response and high efficiency resulting in time and energy savings.
  • 15 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
    Fifteen heating zones and quartz heaters provide rapid heat response with a greater range of control to form challenging shapes and materials
  • Power Table
    Lifts tool table quickly and precisely making effortless operation, even with heavy tools. Twin controls avoid accidental activation.
  • Table Height Adjust
    Table height adjust shortens the tool table travel when using shallow tools and reduces cycle time.
  • Pre-Stretch
    Pre-stretch enables the user to pump air into the heated sheet, creating a bubble to avoid thinning of material with deeper tools.
  • Auto-Level
    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).
