‘Our leading-edge technology can make a real difference to thermoforming operations, increasing efficiencies and aiding the ease of introducing new product lines,’ he states.
Dipak Sen reports that the ATF (automatic thermoforming) machine, favoured by trade formers and in-house operators, is designed with large format and continuous performance parameters to enable high-speed production of thermoformed components.
The Ridat 4848ATF, a heavy-duty automatic reel-fed inline large-format thermoforming machine, boasts double pitch sandwich pre-heating, a duplex spiky chain for material transport and double-acting guillotine for sheet separation.
‘Other notable features include plug assistance, turbo cooling fans, a water-cooled mould bolster and a powered sheet ejector,’ he states.
According to Dipak Sen, Ridat’s heavy-duty roller cutting presses (RCP) provide accurate and consistent results in a variety of materials. The Ridat 546RCP is, for example, designed to cut plastic thermoformed sheet, rubber, leather, board, foil and other gasket material, plastic foam, plastic-coated or impregnated fabric.
