FRIMO VARIOFORM IN-LINE MACHINES

Optimal productivity and operational availability

FRIMO VarioForm in-line machines are a perfect fit for economically deep drawing or vacuum laminating. A variety of concepts and models are available to fit every application. No matter which model you choose, cycle times for producing premium decorative trim parts for automotive interiors can be greatly reduced. Decorative surfaces for automotive interiors are a typical example. We have been continuously developing our machine concepts for decades at FRIMO.

Technically detailed solutions for reliable, cost-effective, competitive production are what make our machines stand out. Patented FRIMO concepts save materials and energy. In addition to the advanced standard model, there are numerous additional options to make your thermoforming equipment completely unique.

 

FRIMO ECOVARIOFORM

The economically-optimized in-line machine

The EcoVarioForm is the cost-effective entry-level model of in-line machines. The swivel-shift platen configuration allows extremely efficient production in a small space.

  • High-quality, extensive standard equipment
  • Compact in-line machine for cycle times of 60-80 seconds
  • Ergonomic part handling with swiveling platen
  • Pre-suction cavities and closed machine construction create a shielded process
  • Easy to relocate
  • Low space requirement

FRIMO VARIOFORM

In-line machines for maximum productivity and operational availability

FRIMO VarioForm in-line machines with a sliding or turn table are a perfect fit for economically deep drawing or vacuum laminating rolled materials or pre-cut blanks. In-mold graining (IMG) is also possible. With patented concepts for material and energy savings, production is guaranteed to be competitive.

  • Flexible production system
  • Suitable for a large spectrum of parts
  • Cycle times from 40 seconds
  • Up to four upper platens for production (turn table concept)

COMBINED DEEP DRAWING AND VACUUM LAMINATING MACHINE

A versatile machine with automatic tool change

The FRIMO "combi" machine is an IMG-capable in-line machine that combines deep drawing of foils for back foaming and vacuum laminating of substrates.

  • Universal machine for multiple thermoforming technologies, including IMG
  • Processing of rolled materials or pre-cut blanks
  • Pre-heating station for tools
  • Integrated substrate pre-heater
  • Tool staging depot with fully-automated tool change system for quickly switching between processes
  • Material savings through process-optimizing chain rail system and blank production
  • Fully-automated, quick tool change

FRIMO MULTIPURPOSE MACHINE (MPM)

Four technologies in one machine

Our multipurpose machine (MPM) multi-talented machine is an ideal solution for flexible small series production. It switches seamlessly between vacuum laminating, edge folding, press laminating, and groove laminating.

  • One investment for four technologies
  • In-mold graining (IMG) add-on optional
  • Short cycle times with two tool uppers for just one upper platen
  • Fully-automated, quick tool change through robot
  • High process reliability

FRIMO SHEETFED MACHINE

Large components two at a time

The SheetFed thermoforming concept for deep drawing and vacuum laminating is especially well-suited for large parts that need to be produced two at a time. Instrument panels are a typical example.

  • Optimal foil positioning through gripper controls
  • Material-saving concept
  • Cycle times of 55-95 seconds possible
  • Process-supporting compressed air forming
  • Air support boxes for foil sag control
  • Lower platen has pivot function for ergonomic unloading
  • Largest possible tool formats can be used from 400 x 500 to 1,200 x 2,250 mm
  • Can also be used for press laminating - clamp force 60 kN
