Occupying minimum floor space, Formech’s FMDH provides a cost effective solution for extrusion manufactures to quality control sheet material up to 10mm thick.
Twin multi-zone heaters provide powerful performance and consistent results with the most demanding materials. With the forming capabilities of much larger industrial production machines, the FMDH is the perfect tool for proofing design concepts, prototyping and pre-production runs across a wide range of materials and applications.
7" Colour HMI/PLC featuring Formech Cycle View (FCV)
Wago control system with 7" colour touch screen, real time adjustments, 1% heater increment control, Formech Cycle View and 40 preset memories.
Top and bottom heaters to form demanding materials and decrease cycle times (6 zones top heater, 6 zones bottom heater).
Ceramic heaters are well suited for high volume production when heaters are engaged for long periods and constant temperature must be maintained.
Electric Heater Drive
Electrically powered heater travel for convenient operation. Controlled speed and braking prevents damage to elements.
Pre-stretch enables the user to pump air into the heated sheet, creating a bubble to avoid thinning of material with deeper tools.
Avoids material sag during the heating cycle and maintains an even distance between heater and sheet whilst providing the user with an audible indication the material is ready to form.

Reduces forming area to utilise smaller sheets of material and minimise wastage. Standard or custom size.
Assembly to hold reel materials.
Cooling Fan System
To cool formed material and shorten cycles times.
Sensor to provide accurate sheet temperature feedback and send heaters back upon reaching target temperature (except on the 686 and 1372 where it gives a digital readout). Emergency air storage tank supplies cooling continuity on shut-down to protect pyrometer.
Vacuum Flow Regulator
Precisely regulates vacuum flow rate when a greater level of control is required with demanding applications.
Multi User Pin Access Control
The supervisor of the machine can choose and determine a level of access for the different operators.
Quartz Heaters with Variable Standby
Quartz heaters have the benefit of a rapid response and high efficiency resulting in time and energy savings.
Pneumatic Trigger Clamps
Pneumatically powered clamping system that provides powerful and effortless control.
Spare parts kit
A consumable parts kit typically including seals, elements, filter, fuses, toggle clamps.
