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 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
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
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.

“For our laboratory we require a forming machine that allows us a maximum of flexibility while ensuring performance and quality of output. Our jobs range from small parts to large‐scale façade panels for construction, and may be single prototypes or a large complex production run. Flexibility of configuration, precision, and “getting it right the first time” are always a priority. After a comprehensive evaluation we chose the large Formech 1372 thermo forming machine for its flexibility, performance, and excellent value. We are extremely satisfied with the machine, and the on-going support from Formech is excellent.”
