Here at Swanstone UK, we have been providing quality vacuum forming machines for many years. We offer a wide range of heavy duty, compact systems which are manufactured to the highest quality standards using the latest technology by Geiss in Germany. Thermoforming machines and their more complex counterparts, vacuum forming machines, are capable of forming any material in any thickness.
These machines heat thermoplastics to a pliable temperature before stretching it over a moulded profile. The cooled plastic is then trimmed to create the final product. Vacuum forming machines are more complex than Thermoforming machines in that they introduce a vacuum in order to remove any surplus air bubbles from the process, creating a much more precise end product.
