High Speed Plastics Thermoforming Oven Solutions

Creating the Finished Package

WECO uses infrared heaters that increase thermoforming efficiency and make thermoforming profitable for you. An Industrial thermoforming oven can be used for heating sheets of composites and thermoplastics to a high temperature so they can be stretched and molded into a shape. Thermoforming ovens are perfect for pre-heating, with suitable heating technology for a tension-free, flawless heating process. WECO thermoforming solutions are typically supplied as a retrofit heat system for production lines making Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).

The popularity of the our infrared solutions are growing, since average energy savings of 40% along with up to 20% productivity improvement are possible and payback time is measured in months. WECO thermoforming ovens are custom designed for each unique application.

The plastics thermoforming industry is often accused of being energy intensive and inaccurate compared to plastics injection molding but WECO industrial heat consultants have the expertise to supply thermoforming replacement heaters to thousands of thermoformers worldwide – saving the industry millions and improving thermoforming line efficiency in the process.
