Formech HD686 vacuum former

The HD Series is the most advanced Formech series which operates autonomously using sheet materials. The HD686, HD750, and HD1000 come with high-end features such as the pneumatic clamping, table, and heater drive with quartz elements, cooling system, vacuum tank, safety light curtain, remote connectivity, and an extensive range of options. They are the most cost-effective, highly adaptable machines on the market, available from Formech with relatively short lead times. Please note that the user has to load a plastic sheet after each cycle, compared to the TF series which is fully automatic. Click here to watch the automatic models in action
