Wago control system with 10" 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.
48 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
48 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
48 heating zones and quartz heaters provides 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 and Manual Clamping
Pneumatic and Manual Clamping
Initial stage 1 pneumatic clamping with two additional manual clamps at the front of the frame.
Pneumatic Table with Rack and Pinion
Pneumatic Table with Rack and Pinion
The table is either pulled up from above (semi–auto) or pushed up from below (auto). The rack and pinion maintains horizontal table travel when more than one table cylinder is used.
Table Height Adjust
Table Height Adjust
Table height adjust shortens the tool table travel when using shallow tools and reduces cycle time.
Pre-Stretch
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
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 Receiver Tanks
Vacuum Receiver Tanks
Two vacuum tanks that provide 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).
Four Cooling Fans
Four Cooling Fans
Overhead gantry and four 550W fans to cool formed material and shorten cycles times.
