Increase Thermoforming Production with Efficient Radiant Heat

Starview IF Series automatic vacuum formers are designed for medium to higher run thermoforming applications. The IF machines will form most common materials such as PVC, PET, Polystyrene, ABS, etc.

The IF Series is offered with a standard form area 25" x 40" as well as custom sizes to meet customer requirements. These machines can increase production up to 80% over typical single moveable oven type vacuum formers. Features such as plug/grid assist, male/female mold capability and inline preheat systems increase the versatility of this machine.

IF Series automatic vacuum formers can be equipped with optional features such as a sandwich (upper and lower) heater system operated dependently or independently above and below the film. Additional zones of heating may also be created for improved control of sheet heating.
