2920 x 1320mm inside frame
COMBITHERM is a compact built, space-saving, combined thermo heating and forming unit. The combination of a thermo heating oven with a vacuum press enables you to heat up various thermoforming materials fast to their optimal forming temperature and then form them with vacuum in one machine.
COMBITHERM is ideal for heating and forming solid surface materials such as: HI-MACS, AVONITE, CORIAN, STARON, VARICOR, GETACORE, WILSONART, PLEXICOR, MARLAN, KERROCK, etc.
COMBITHERM is ideal for heating and forming all other thermoforming materials such as: ABS, PC (Makrolon), PMMA (Plexiglas), PET-G (Vivak), PS, PP, PVC, etc.
COMBITHERM is of course a vacuum press for: veneering, coating, laminating and pressing
COMBITHERM is easy to use. The innovative circulating hot air system heats thermoforming materials in various thicknesses and qualities evenly. This generates a very gentle and unproblematic heating up procedure. The vacuum press operates with the sophisticated technology designed by Columbus!
