FV35R Thermoformer

The FV35R is an automatic vacuum forming machine with separate stations for forming, trimming and stacking. It is suitable for medium outputs of small parts.

The FV35R is a pneumatic motioned machine specially designed for simplicity and flexibility. Designed to form blisters below the film line but with an option to modify the trimming press so that blisters can be cut above the film line with a downward stacking operation. The formed blisters are stacked in piles on a conveyor belt, below the stacking device. This stacking system eliminates the need for complicated vertical stacking tools and can therefore be shared between different formats.

Operation

With the continuous roll fed material, securely punched along the side edges into a chain conveyor, moving through the heater. The hot sheet continues into the forming station where forming takes place by forcing a vacuum heated plastic sheet against a mould to produce the desired shape blister.

Once formed, it moves into the trimming station where the formings/blisters are punched out by steel rule die. Finally, parts move into the stacking station where they are separated from the roll and placed onto a conveyor belt. When stacking cycle is complete, the conveyor moves forward delivering the blisters to the operator.
