The forming & steel rule die cutting moulds are vacuum and compressed air forming moulds (simultaneously or separately managed).
They are suitable for thermoplastic, rigid or expanded materials.
They are suitable for short run of pieces because the mould change can be done in a short time.
In addition to a constant forming quality, with the self-centring dies it is possible to obtain excellent cutting precision.
In the stacking step, the most suitable equipment for the thermoformed product and for the system on which it is installed is manufactured.
Combined Forming & Steel Rule Die Moulds
In this equipment, compressed air and vacuum thermoforming is carried out in the first step and simultaneously the outer perimeter of the tray is cut using die cutters. In the second and last step the trays are stacked. This type of technology can only be applied to certain item types with certain features. The substantial advantage of this equipment is the perfect concentricity between the thermoformed and the cutting perimeter.
Forming and Separate Steel Rule Die Mould
In this equipment, compressed air and vacuum thermoforming is carried out at the first step. In the second step the outer perimeter of the thermoformed product is cut using fixed or self-centring die cutters. In the third and last step the details are stacked. This technology is suitable for productions where you are willing to accept small errors of concentricity between the thermoformed and external perimeter and some small pulling notch.
