Vacuum Forming Capabilities

Vacuum forming equipment.VACUUM FORMING MACHINES

 FLOE’s Thermoforming Division capabilities range from mid size all the way to the largest in the world with both medium and heavy gauge capabilities.  All machines include:
  • Dedicated vacuum storage system insures crisp and measured control over part forming.
  • Dedicated mold temperature heaters (16KW each) insure molds will be properly and evenly heated and cooled maximizing molding efficiency and providing lowest cycle times possible.
  • 60 ton chiller insures rapid mold cooling, along with additional air cooling systems throughout the mold station.
  • Post-forming operations support includes trimming, grinding, adding materials such as stiffeners, caps, cosmetics, assembly, or other OEM requirements.

AVT ROTARY

For extremely large parts up to a 6′ draw using sheet sizes up to 25′ x 10′

  • World’s largest three-station rotary vacuum thermoformer with automated loading/unloading, oven and mold stations.
  • Machine size is 75′ in diameter and 40′ tall.
  • AVT Rotary forms heavy gauge (up to .600), large sheet size (up to 124″ x 304″), with deep draws (up to 72″).
  • High granularity ceramic oven system consists of 2280 programmable elements within 1140 zones of control (Multiba controllers), allowing for the use of many different plastics materials requiring precise heating.
  • Upper and lower mold station platens support mold weights up to 13,736 lbs per platen.
  • 7000 gallon dedicated vacuum storage system insures crisp and instantaneous control over part forming.
  • 10-14 dedicated mold temperature heaters (16KW each) insure the largest molds will be properly and evenly heated and cooled maximizing molding efficiency and providing lowest cycle times possible.
  • Auxiliary equipment has been engineered to support extreme corner cases providing FLOE Thermoforming with unique possibilities that other mainstream thermoformers do not have.
