CLARKES DOUBLE-SIDED STRIP HEATER
A sheet of thermoplastic material, such as Perspex, Acrylic Sheet, ABS or Polycarbonate is heated in a strip along its length. The width of the heated area is normally around twice the thickness of the material. Due to the characteristics of the material, it becomes flexible when heated, allowing it to be bent to the required shape. Once cooled, the bent material retains the formed shape. These machines are identical to the single-sided heater, but with the addition of upper heating wires in the clamp beam. This reduces heating times by up to 50% and works best on materials with a thickness of 3-10mm.
Working length machine options: 1000mm (Model 1000D) & 1500mm (Model 1500D)
