25 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
25 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
Twenty five heating zones and quartz heaters provide rapid heat response with a greater range of control to form challenging shapes and materials
Electric Heater Drive
Electric Heater Drive
Electrically powered heater travel for convenient operation. Controlled speed and braking prevents damage to elements.
Pneumatic Trigger Clamps
Pneumatic Trigger Clamps
Pneumatically powered clamping system that provides powerful and effortless control.
Power Table
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
Table height adjust shortens the tool table travel when using shallow tools and reduces cycle time.
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 Receiver Tank
Vacuum Receiver Tank
A vacuum tank that provides instant stored vacuum, for high demanding materials and shortening cycle times.
Vacuum & Pressure Gauges
Vacuum & Pressure Gauges
A visual indication of consistent vacuum and pressure being applied (pressure in Hg / bar).
Twin Cooling Fan System
Twin Cooling Fan System
