The large format vacuum forming machine of Formech the 2440 has a forming area of 2380 x 1160 mm with a depth of up to 600 mm. The vacuum forming machine 2440 is the largest machine in the formech series. The Formech 2440 is equipped with a 10 “touch screen control panel with the developed FCV (Formech Cycle View) program for ease of use remaining in an easy-to-use machine on large format and industrial machines. The Formech 2440 is equipped with quartz heaters in 48 different heating zones for a very fast response and accurate heating setting coupled with energy savings.
The Formech 2440 has a double 400 liter vacuum tank for direct and optimal vacuum response and provides a draw with excellent definition of the models in this size format. The 4 cooling fans provide rapid cooling after the thermoplastic plates are vacuumed, resulting in shorter production cycle times. The 10 “touchscreen display has the possibility to program pre-settings for 40 different settings in a name that you can set yourself. These memory presets can then be called up quickly and easily for any application.
Electric heating with pneumatic table and pneumatically supported clamps make this large industrial machine or large and complex work of large applications possible for a light production job for the different operators. The intuitive control system of the 2440 is very approachable and easy to operate with an operator of all levels.
10 “Color HMI / PLC control panel featuring Formech Cycle View (FCV)
Wago control system with a 10 “touch screen color screen, real time adjustments possible, 1% accurate adjustable heating elements, Formech Cycle View and 40 preset memory settings for every application.
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.
48 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
The 48 heating zones provide rapid heating with various temperature options on various zones for the challenging shapes and materials.
Pneumatic trigger clamps
Pneumatically driven clamping system that provides powerful and effortless operation.
Electric Heater Drive
Electrically driven heating current for pleasant operation of the machine.This system also ensures that the speed of heating and cooling is controlled to prevent damage to the elements.
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 Receiver Tanks
Two vacuum storage tanks for direct vacuum which ensures specific materials, form complexes and shortened production cycle.
Vacuum & Pressure Gauges
A visual indication of consistent vacuum pressure in Hg / bar.
4 Cooling Fans
4 Cooling Fans Above the system, 4 x 550W (two double) cooling fans are placed to allow vacuum-drawn materials to cool immediately. This shortens the production cycle.
Oil filled rotary vane pump 40m3 / hr
Reduce frames that narrow the mold area to use smaller sheets of material. This reduces the use of plastic sheets. Standard sizes and special sizes.
The heating pyrometer is a sensor that provides a digital display of the heat on the plate material. This precise measurement is measured with infrared and transmitted to the machine. On models larger than the Formech 686 and 1572, the sensor also passes the information on to the heating elements.
The cooling pad is a water-cooled plate for direct cooling of the aluminum tools and for regulating the temperature. This creates a faster and more consistent production cycle.
Vacuum flow controller
The vacuum air flow controller regulates the vacuum flows exactly when they are needed in simple or very complex models and applications.
Multi-user pin access control
The designated supervisor of the machine can activate different levels for different operator intervention levels.
Spare parts kit
A starter package made of foil material made of various plastics (HIPS, ABS, PETG), which was specially manufactured on the machine you bought.
