Our CM420 is a machine is designed for small to medium production quantities, and is excellently suited for both with dual row moulds for medium sized production runs (maximum of 15.000 cups p/hour) and for smaller (pilot) runs using single cavity moulds.

MEAF’s thermoforming machine CM420 combines the tilting mould technology with de-stacking directly from the mould, which makes the CM420 a reliable, low-maintenance and durable asset. Especially for companies whom have small to medium productruns with lightweight and/or difficult designed products, the CM420 can be an excellent, flexible solution!

The CM420 thermoforming machine is designed to be:

  • Sustainable due to production space reduction and lasting equipment life;
  • Operated efficiently due to compact build & operator friendly, in-house by MEAF developed, operating system “Thermosol”;
  • Flexible, due to the design being suited for easy and fast retooling;
  • Customisable (even after sales) due to possibility of utilizing of moulds of different manufacturers.

MEAF’s philosophy, since its commencement in 1947, has always been to engineer, develop and build flexible thermoforming equipment to the worldwide packaging and polymer processing industry. The extraordinary success of the MEAF thermoforming machines comes forth out of the MEAF philosophy in combination with a partnership approach towards a customer, supporting them along each phase of your (buying) process and many years after the purchase!

Advantages of the MEAF CM420 thermoforming machine:

  • Compact design, with a rigid, medium duty forming station, reducing the required production space;
  • Servodriven mouldtable movement, providing a maintenance free, long lifetime drive with the highest possible accuracy;
  • Servodriven plug assist, providing 17.800 N of force;
  • Fully automatic lubrication system for all major parts;
  • Individually controlled heating zones in heating frame for better product control;
  • User and operator friendly operating system “Thermosol”;

The CM420 comes standard with all of the above mentioned features, providing you a flexible, efficient and medium duty thermoforming machine!

Inline thermoforming
