Formech 1500

Featuring the intuitive ‘FCV’ (Formech Cycle View) user interface with a 7” touch-screen, the large sheet format 1250/1500 series is particularly well suited to automotive and aerospace R&D, sign and display companies and film & theatre set design.

Electric heater drive, pneumatic table and clamping provides effortless operation, whilst the vacuum tank system fitted as standard facilitates ultra-fast response for demanding applications and fast cycle times.

Designed to utilise sheet sizes of 1500 x 1000mm (1500) Formech’s 1500 series affords the operator a hands on approach versus more costly and fully guarded automatic machines.


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.

Quartz Heaters with Variable Standby

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

18 Independently Controllable Heating Zones

Eighteen heating zones and quartz heaters provide rapid heat response with a greater range of control to form challenging shapes and materials

Electric Heater Drive

Electrically powered heater travel for convenient operation. Controlled speed and braking prevents damage to elements.

Pneumatic Trigger Clamps

Pneumatically powered clamping system that provides powerful and effortless control.

Power Table

Lifts tool table quickly and precisely making effortless operation, even with heavy tools. Twin controls avoid accidental activation.

Table Height Adjust

Table height adjust shortens the tool table travel when using shallow tools and reduces cycle time.


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.

Vacuum Receiver Tank

A vacuum tank that provides instant stored vacuum, for high demanding materials and shortening cycle times.

Vacuum & Pressure Gauges

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

Twin Cooling Fan System

Overhead gantry and twin 550W fans to cool formed material and shorten cycles times.
