Cannon Shelley PF1510 Vacuum Thermo Forming Press

Thermoplastic vacuum forming is a technique for transforming flat plastic into a three dimensional shapes using a mould tools. Sheet plastic is heated to make the plastic malleable, following this the plastic is stretched over the mould tool and a vacuum is created as air is removed from the machine. The atmospheric pressure around the tool forces the plastic to cast itself upon the tool producing the plastic silhouette

This thermo-forming press was fully refurbished approximately 4 years ago for a development project of microwave technology pre heating of the thermoforming sheets to plasticise them prior to entering the press to vastly reduce the cycle times. (See lot PER730 )

Once the development work was proven the press was surplus to requirements and has only worked a few hours since the refurbishment programme.
