Many of our customers are new to vacuum forming or bringing the process in-house for the first time so often require extensive hand-holding throughout the process. Intuitive control and easy operation are key features of all Formech machines to help the most inexperienced users attain quick and repeatable results.
Our highly experienced team can offer a wide range of consultancy services from CAD tooling design to testing new materials and applications, machine customisation and much more. Many of our customers are looking to try something new or prove a design is production-ready. We have a broad range of experience assisting model makers, sign makers, automotive, aerospace, packaging, confectionary and many more customer groups to realise their designs and objectives.
As markets become increasingly competitive, the need for a competitive edge is ever more apparent. Whilst the vacuum forming process has been in existence for more than 80 years, we are witnessing an explosion in availability of new engineering grade materials, which present all new challenges, requiring in-depth understanding and ‘High Performance’ machine features. The commercial advantages of mastering these challenging materials are considerable.

Formech machines are designed to be user serviceable for all consumable parts saving you time and money. Step by step maintenance and troubleshooting guides are provided with each machine. We are always happy to help our customers diagnose and resolve issues by phone or email but if you require on site assistance we offer expedient support and fixed price service / repair options.
It is rare that our customers require anything more than consumable parts such as elements, seals and vacuum pump filters but we carry extensive stocks of all key parts for immediate shipping. In most cases we are still able to supply parts for machines 20 years and older.
