Description

The LaborForma serie’s thermoforming machines are suitable for working plastic materials HIPS / ABS / PMMA / PP in cycle, with thickness up to approx. 8 mm and PVC up to 3 mm. If equipped with dedicated accessories, they can also process materials reel-to-reel up to approx. 1 mm if rigid, higher if flexible.

These machines are suitable for the production of any thermoformed article: articles for the bathroom furniture (bathtubs, tubs, shower trays, shower walls), articles for household appliances (refrigerators, containers, vacuum cleaners), illuminated signs, helmets, etc.

Laborforma is a one working station machine, where plastification and forming take place.

The material loading/unloading is manual, or automatic if conceived with a specific optional. Moulds whose forms can be positive or negative relating to the material sliding line are used.

All LaborForma industrial thermoforming machines are manufactured according to CE rules and provided with:

  • Manual sheet loading
  • Sheet clamping system
  • Forming station with plug assist system
  • Bilateral sheet heating system with ceramic heaters
  • Cooling system with fans
  • Vacuum system
  • PC with color display screen and control software

All the machines may be equipped with the following optional:

  • Automatic sheet clamping adjustment with motors (Patent)
  • Automatically adjustable window frame with motors (Patent)
  • Automatic mould plate clamping
  • Mould drawing carriage
  • Automatic sheet loader
  • Unwinder
  • Pre-heating unit
  • Quartz or halogen heating elements with ceramic-glass protection
  • Remote diagnostics

Heating systems

Each eating panel may be equipped with different type of heaters, chosen according to the end user’s requirements among ceramic heaters, either standard or high-efficiency, quartz heaters, flash heaters (halogen).

Dimension of heating elements are selected according to the product type to be thermoformed.

The optional configuration of the machine includes also the installation of an IR pyrometer, which assures a correct thermoforming of each sheet, in particular when different temperature values are involved.

The system with servomotors

The core of the thermoforming system is the powered handling controls of mold plate, plug assist and material clamping tools. The use of servomotors, allows to improve:

  • Handling accuracy;
  • Output rate, with increase in cycles/hour number thanks to higher moving speed;
  • Machine noise level decrease, plus no environmental contamination because the oil-dynamic power unit is not used anymore.
