New Sibe Automation Model SBSP54156 58” x 118” Single Station Thermoformer

The frame of the machine will be built of heavy-duty aluminum extrusion and steel plates

The maximum forming area will be 58”x 118”.

The fully adjustable pneumatic clamping frame will accommodate a maximum sheet size of 60” x 120”. The frame features clamping bars with spring loaded pins providing positive mechanical hold of the thermoplastic sheet.

Heating of the material will be provided by energy efficient ceran glass heaters panels with a heat density of 15 watts per square inch, with a total of 25 independently controlled heating zones on top and the same number in the bottom,  control of each zone will be done by the PLC. Upon start up the heaters go through a soft start sequence, reducing the electric power peak demand. Each heating zone is driven by solid state relays

To prevent energy waste, if the start pushbutton has not been activated for an hour the heaters are shut off automatically, if the start button is activated after the period of time, heaters will come back on.

Each function of the machine will be controlled by an Automation Direct 206 PLC with a C-More touch screen operator interface, screen. Our set of control functions is the most advanced in the industry. On the touch screen you will be able to store up to 30 different recipes

The control system of the machine allows for manual – set up – automatic operation. For an operating manual you may visit the manuals section on www.sibeautomation.com.

The platen as well as the clamping frame are mounted on linear ball bearings that ride on hardened shafts.

The   bottom platen will have a stroke 27”, with fully adjustable speed controls and length of travel. We use top of the line SMC pneumatic components. Platen stabilized by a rack and pinion assembly.

Cooling of the material will be provided by 4, 3250 cfm. Cooling fans.

The vacuum system consists of a 5 HP. Becker vacuum pump with a 400 gallon accumulating tank.  We provide all of our machines with high flow pilot operated vacuum valves with a diameter of 1.5” supplying vacuum and air eject to the molds

Our vacuum valves are controlled in such a way that they can provide pulsating vacuum to reduce material webbing when running tall male molds. You can control duration of each pulse, interval between pulses and number of pulses.

The Machine will be fitted with 2 vacuum valves independently controlled

We include a set of flexible vacuum hoses, 1.5” diameter, with quick disconnects to connect to the molds

The machine includes side’s guards.

We will include an operating manual, as well as electrical schematics.

All our machines are covered by a 1 year limited warranty. We provide technical support 24/7.

The machine requires 280 amps 440 volts 3 phase. Other voltages available.

The footprint is 174” wide” x 168” long.
