508DT

508DT


Featuring PLC touch screen control, Formech’s plug and play 508DT is a user friendly desktop machine with the power and capability to form more demanding shapes and materials.

Rapid, energy efficient quartz heaters with variable standby means the 508DT is ready to form in less than 5 minutes.

20 programme memory to recall heater profile and timing settings for each project. A dedicated trolley option provides a minimal footprint with the convenience of portability and optimum working height.

 

Features

4" Mono HMI /PLC Interface with Memory Function
Mitsubishi integrated PLC/HMI with 4" mono touch screen control and 20 programmable presets.

Quartz Heaters with Variable Standby
Quartz heaters have the benefit of a rapid response and high efficiency resulting in time and energy savings.

4 Independently Controllable Heating Zones
Four heating zones and quartz heaters provide rapid heat response with a greater range of control to form challenging shapes and materials

Safety Interlock
Mechanical interlock prevents table being raised whilst heaters are in forward position (all desktop machines).

Vacuum & Release
After the formed part has cooled, air is forced between the mould and the sheet to help it release.

Vacuum Gauge
A visual indication of consistent vacuum pressure being applied (pressure in Hg / bar).
