RV 2 – TWO STATION ROTARY THERMOFORMING MACHINE

  • RV-2 is an automatic machine that produces thermoformed parts with thickness above 1mm.

    This machine is two station carousel type, that is, a rotary vaccum forming machine in which both frames rotate.
    While one sheet is heated, another one is being molded and cooled. This system gives the machine far greater
    productivity when compared to single-station ones.

    RV-2 has two ovens, making the molding of various materials possible.

  • Lakatos 4.0
    Connectivity, integrationand remote maintenancefor your shop floor.
  • IN ACCORDANCE WITHSAFETY STANDARDS.

  •  Automatic cycle - unless material is loading and unloading.
  • Heats the plastic sheet from both sides by a double oven.  Thick materials are heated in less time and with less difference of temperature between the two sides. As it is a rotary-type machine, the ovens are always in use, which increases productivity and saves energy.
  • Molds various materials (ABS, PS, PVC, PMMA) with 1 to 10mm thickness.
  • Operates with male and female molds.
  • Ovens are made with infrared irradiation elements, easy-to-maintain  standardized. The ovens are built with stainless steel, able to absorb thermal dilations and designed to save energy.
  • Heating distribution by using several heating zones in the oven. The number of zones varies according to machine size. PID individual  temperature control for each heating zone.
  • Pre blow . • Plug assist equipped (Plug).
  • Possibility to be equipped with sliding parts in the mold  and in the plug assist.
  • Vacuum system with 2 molding flows. High pressure and flow  vacuum pumps with large tanks.
  • Compressed air to remove thermoformed part from the mold.
  • “Teach” function keys and ajustable mold and plug assist height.
  • Rotation movement of frames by servo-motor and clutch.
  • Centrifugal high-flow fans to cool the thermoformed plastic.
  • High performance and large capacity PLC. It can control: heating  zones, times, alarms, various setups, parts counters and many other  parameters. It offers options for over 100 moldes.
  • Easy to understand man machine interface. MMI (size varies  according to machine size).
  • First-class components.
  • Machine is designed with parameters that allow easy customization to meet each customer´s needs.

In addition to choosing the size of the molding area, it is alsopossible to equip RV-2 with the following optional items:

  • Infrared temperature sensor to control heating cycle  by plastic temperature.
  • Water spray - reduce cooling time, giving faster cycles, increasing productivity.
  • Mold temperature control.
  • Compressed air spots in the plug.
  • Quick molding change with transfer spheres on the mold table.
  • Sliding frames to speed up sheet size change.

Lakatos Termoformadoras attends K Trade Fair 2019

Company participates in the international trade fair for the first time under a new name and it is focused on expanding its business in the Latin American thermoforming market. 

Lakatos Termoformadoras will be at the K Trade Fair, the largest trade fair in the plastics and rubber industry, October 16-23, Hall 3 | F45 in Düsseldorf, Germany. For the first time at an international event since it was renamed, formerly called Electro-Forming, the company will have an institutional booth with commercial service, where promotional material (videos, catalogs, etc.) about Lakatos products and solutions will be available.

The name change took place in early 2019 as a brand repositioning strategy based on three pillars: the evolution of the company, which is nowadays a national reference in the manufacturing of thermoformers and thermoforming molds; the investiment in innovation and technology in the manufacturing processes and products; and the expansion in the Latin American plastic transformation market.

According to Paulo Lakatos, company director, the expectation for the event is very high, as Lakatos is focused on the major players in Latin America. “Today the domestic market has conventional technologies similar to those developed by the best European players. Our products bring competitive productivity, engineering and energy efficiency,” he says. Lakatos also participates in the main Latin American trade fairs of the sector, held in countries such as Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina and Colombia.

In Paulo Lakatos´ opinion, the new relationship between plastic and the world is one of the main challenges of the sector: “We will see during the trade fair the trends that will be outlined for this new scenario”, he says.

Thermoformers and  4.0 Solutions
 
At the booth you will be able to watch presentation videos (and other content) about Lakatos machines, including the TCM-2 thermoformer. Powered by rolls, the machine is available with three or four stations in different configurations (molding, cutting, perforation and stacking). It is ideal to manufacture trays, food packaging, perforated parts and blister packs in different types of plastics (PS, PET, PVC and PP) with thicknesses from 0.1 to 1.3 mm.

Another highlight of Lakatos is Supravac 2, suitable for thick plate molding of different thermoplastic materials (PS, ABS, PET, PVC, PP and HDPE). The main feature of the thermoformer is its productivity: it automatically loads plates and unloads molds and can reach 60 cycles / hour, depending on the material used. In addition, it has two high-output ovens that control heating by resistance zones, avoiding plate deformities and ensuring a high quality finished product.

Aware of new manufacturing processes, Lakatos is working on designing solutions that involve digital technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence. Thus, customers already using connectivity and remote maintenance systems will soon be able to perform data analysis.
