Vandalia, Ohio-based thermoforming machinery maker Zed Industries Inc. builds its new HG-Series heavy-gauge machines with forming areas of 25 inches by 30 inches to 144 inches by 144 inches, and draw depths of up to 36 inches.
The single-station HG machines handle sheet as thick as one-quarter inch.
Upper and lower steel platens move independently. On the larger machines, platens are gear-stabilized on all four corners.
Zed machines can feed heavy-gauge roll stock automatically into the clamp frame, according to each job.
