The Formech 1372 large format vacuum forming system offers a nice combination of shapes of large size surface and a wide choice of molding possibilities in combination with an attractive price. This “value for money” machine is therefore often used in making film and theater productions, props, universities and colleges, aerospace and automotive, but also R&D and production departments.
In addition to the extensive standards, the Formech 1372 also has a wide choice of options for an optimized production cycle as with the previous models. These options include the pneumatic clamps, multi user pin access control, pyrometer and vacuum flow regulator. With the large format machines, packages such as the SA – Semi Automatic packages, high performance package and the vacuum receiver tank can also be ordered.

7 “Color HMI / PLC featuring Formech Cycle View (FCV)
Wago control system with a 7 “color screen touch screen, real time adjustments possible, 1% accurate adjustable heating elements, Formech Cycle View and 40 preset memory settings.
Quartz Heaters with variable standby
The Quartz heating elements ensure a fast response of the heating and cooling of the elements. This ensures a quick and easy process for piece production and series production. This results in optimal efficiency in the production process and energy savings during use and breaks. The standby can be set to various modes for fast and slow productions.
15 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
The 6 heating zones provide rapid heating with various temperature options on various zones for the challenging shapes and materials.
Heavy tabletop with electric control by two buttons that do not separately activate the table control for safety reasons. This very easy to operate table top can also carry heavier tools made of, for example, milled aluminum.
Table Height Adjust
Adjusting the table height shortens the displacement of the table during the production cycle and thus shortens the production cycle.
Pre-stretch functions ensure evenly distributed plastic production by pre-stretching the material. The warm air is blown into the sheet material to create a pre-stretched plastic sheet. In deeper drafts there will be a better distribution in thickness of the material.
The Auto-Level function prevents sagging of large size and thick plates during the heating cycle. The Auto Level function maintains an evenly spaced distance between the plate and the heater when the user is also informed when the plate is hot enough to draw the shape.
Vacuum & Pressure Gauges
A visual indication of consistent vacuum pressure in Hg / bar. Dry rotary vane pump 25m3 / hr. An oil free pump with minimal maintenance.
Reduce frames that narrow the molding area to use smaller material sheets. This reduces the use of plastic panels. Standard sizes and custom sizes.
Twin Cooling Fan System
A double 550W ventilation system with airlift for mounting. This double air ventilation system ensures rapid cooling on the plastic plates, which reduces the production cycle time.
The Heating Pyrometer is a sensor that provides a digital readout of the heat on the plate material. This accurate measurement is measured with infrared and transmitted to the machine. On larger models than the Formech 686 and 1572, the sensor also passes the information on to the heating elements.
The Cooling Bolster is a water-cooled plate to directly cool the aluminum tools and to regulate the temperature. This generates a faster and more consistent production cycle.
Vacuum Flow Regulator
The Vacuum air flow regulator controls the vacuum flows exactly when they are required in simple or very complex models and applications.
Pneumatic Trigger Clamps
Pneumatic clamps for user-friendly and short production when changing the thermoplastics.
Multi User Pin Access Control
The designated supervisor of the machine can enable various levels for different operator access levels.
Assembly reel system for mounting on the machine. Thermoplastic on a roll can be used on this reel.
Spare parts kit
A starter package of sheet material of various plastics (HIPS, ABS, PETG) specially made on the machine you purchase.
SA – Semi-Auto Package
Semi-automatic upgrade includes the electric heating elements drive and pneumatic clamps.
HP – High Performance Package
55 heating elements with the pyrometer and the extensive control system.
VT – Vacuum Tank Package
Vacuum Tank Package contains a vacuum receiver tank with an upgrade to an oil pump and control system.
