Using a combination of heat and pressure, a sheet of plastic is gently heated before a strong vacuum forces the plastic against a single surface solid pattern. The vac former allows plastic forms to be easily created, capturing fine details and generating objects of uniform material thickness

The Formech 450DT is DFab's small scale vacuum former. With a form area of 430 x 280mm and a reducing window for smaller patterns, the 450DT is perfect for a range of forming jobs. .
