The FLB500 line bender enables the user to form a bend in a sheet of plastic up to 500mm wide by the use of an 8mm diameter incoloy heating element. Once the plastic is hot, it can then be formed to any angle and placed in the separate cooling jig until it is cold. The cooling jig is supplied with the line bender.

The FLB1000 line bender enables the user to form a bend in a sheet of plastic up to 1000mm wide by the use of a quartz heating element. The gap through which the heat is emitted is ajustable on the FLB1000 and there is also a built in timer which is useful for production runs.

“I have only fired up one machine so far, very fast warm up time, less than 5 minutes to bend 3 mm acrylic from cold, and once warm 1 minute to bend 3mm acrylic. Very impressed with heat guard over the element, great idea!”
