Solid Phase Pressure Forming System.

Who: Preco Industries (Lenexa, KS)

What: ConvertaForm solid phase pressure forming system

Why you should care: ConvertaForm's highly accurate camera registration method (+ or - .125mm) uses printed fiducials to make decorative automotive parts and eliminates the negatives normally associated with pinhole tooling like high-variance registration and fixed material size requirements.

Pertinent Data: ConvertaForm accommodates forming sizes greater than 325mm x 41 5mm and provides variable substrate dimensioning. It reduces unnecessary forming process steps by providing material heating solutions for better substrate stability. The system is available in both web and sheet configurations with an optional selection that allows the user to change material delivery as needed.
