Makers and small businesses looking for an affordable way to manufacture vacuum formed products in small production runs may be interested in a new desktop vacuum forming machine which has been created by Vaquform based in Los Angeles California.
The desktop vacuum former is available from just $599 with shipping expected to take place during October 2017 and comes complete with everything you need including 30 vacuum forming plastic sheets, to start creating.
Watch the video below to learn more about the specifications of the Vaquform vacuum forming machine which is taken to Kickstarter this week to raise the $60,000 the team requires to go into production. Thanks to over 157 backers the team has already raised $90,000 with still 28 days remaining on its campaign.
It goes far beyond the LCD interface. Vaquform brings high-end process control to desktop vacuum forming, turning it into a smart appliance fit for a modern engineering lab, design office, or artist studio. Vaquform has an exclusively designed hybrid vacuum unit that combines high airflow and high vacuum. Speed and power. It delivers the kind of results you normally see with thermoformers that cost thousands of dollars.
Vaquform’s two-stage hybrid system begins with a high speed impeller that removes about 90% of the air from under the plastic sheet. Like a vacuum cleaner, it maxes out around -3 PSI. But then a secondary vacuum takes over, squeezing out the remaining air at -12.8 PSI.
