Vacuum Former CR1820
The C R Clarke CR1820 vacuum former is a flexible workhorse. With a huge 285mm depth of draw, and the largest forming area in our range, it's a formidable beast. Capable of processing 8mm thick sheet, it's the ultimate workshop tool for plastic forming. 240V, single phase.
Our CR1820 has been developed for high
performance, ease of use and low maintenance. The machine
is fitted with a dual rocking head vacuum pump assembly
that generates -0.83 Bar, and also provides a blow release
facility to aid removal of the completed forming.
