The Formech 1372 is a large format vacuum forming machine for processing various types of thermoplastics. Due to the large size and the longest axis of 1330 mm, this machine is very popular for designers of film, TV and theater productions, universities, automotive, R&D, props, production of hobby products and concrete industry for molds. The 1372 has a wide choice of various options such as semi-automating the production cycle. This actually turns the 1372 large format vacuum forming machine into an automatic production machine. In addition to the automatic package, there may be an upgrade of heating elements, vacuum receiver tank and various cooling systems. This makes this machine usable as an advanced production machine for technical plastics.

Quartz heating with variable standby
Quartz heaters have the advantage of fast response and high efficiency, resulting in time and energy savings.
15 independently controllable heating zones
Fifteen heating zones and Quartz heaters provide a fast heat drive with a greater range of control to form challenging shapes and materials
Lifts the tool table quickly and accurately and allows fatigue-free work even with heavy tools. Dual controls prevent accidental activation.
Adjust table height
Table height adjustment shortens the travel of the tool table when using shallow tools and shortens cycle time.
Pre-stretch allows the user to pump air into the heated plate, creating an air bubble to prevent material from thinning with deeper tools.
Avoids material sag during the heating cycle and maintains an even distance between the heater and the plate, while providing the user with an audible indication that the material is ready to be formed.
Vacuum and pressure gauges
A visual indication of a consistent vacuum and pressure being applied (pressure in Hg / bar).
Dry rotary vane pump 25m3 / hour
Oil-free and requires minimal maintenance
Reduces the forming area to use smaller sheets of material and minimize waste. We offer this in Standard or custom format.
Twin Cooling Fan System
Overhead gantry and twin 550W fans to cool molded material and reduce cycle times.
Sensor for accurate feedback of blade temperature and return heaters when target temperature is reached (except on the 686 and 1372 where it gives a digital readout). Emergency air storage tank provides cooling continuity on shutdown to protect the pyrometer.
A water-cooled plate to instantly cool and control the aluminum tool temperature for consistent and faster cycle times.
Vacuum flow regulator
Accurately controls the vacuum flow when a greater degree of control is required in demanding applications.
Pneumatic trigger clamps
Pneumatically powered clamping system that provides powerful and effortless operation.
Multi-user pin access control
The supervisor of the machine can choose and determine an access level for the different operators.
Assembly to hold reel materials.
Set with spare parts
A consumable kit, usually with seals, elements, filter, fuses, tension clips.
