CR Clarke: 1820 Vacuum Former

SKU: 1820-vacuum-former Categories: ,


Our vacuum formers have been developed for high performance, ease of use and low maintenance. All machines are fitted with a -0.83 bar vacuum pump, which also provides a blow release to assist in the removal of the forming. Ceramic heater systems are used for fast and even heating. The platen slides on chrome plated slide bars with nylon bushes for smooth operation.  The heater hood slides on cantilever tracks, leaving the front of the machine open for roll feeding material.  The one-piece moulded silicone top seal is heat resistant for long service, while the platen seal simply lifts out for ease of maintenance.  The 1820 will produce professional, quality and high definition vacuum formings on a production scale as required by model makers, engineers and students quickly, efficiently and consistently.

The 1820 is supplied as a freestanding unit with lockable castors for ease of movement around the workshop.
