Having identified the need for good quality used Vacuum Forming Machinery in the Thermoforming and Trimming Industry, we took the step to offer refurbished equipment.

Our portfolio changes regularly and covers a range of equipment suitable for all budgets. All machines are fully evaluated, serviced and refurbished and in some cases this can comprise of a complete overhaul including repainting.  We only offer equipment from our own portfolio as this guarantees that we are able to fulfil any warranty obligations along with being able to maintain the equipment in the future.

In line with offering pre-owned equipment we also offer a refurbishment service for customer’s existing equipment. In cases where it is not viable to replace an older used vacuum forming machine, refurbishment can be arranged to suit the customer’s budget and can include:

  • Top and Bottom Heater Rewire
  • Cylinder Resealing
  • Machine Rehosing
  • Table and Clamp Frame Synchronisation Replacement
  • Upgrade of Light Barriers, Pyrometer and Sheet Sag Equipment
  • PLC controller upgrade – to replace obsolete Microprocessors and prolong the life of your existing equipment where capital expenditure for new equipment is not available or viable.

Upgrades are carried out with the used vacuum forming machine in situ to minimise downtime and for full refurbishments the equipment is relocated to our premises in Telford for convenience.

For any enquiries on used equipment or refurbishment work, please contact us on, the office on 01952 400050 or alternatively, feel free to speak directly to one of our Directors.
