The Formbox is a desktop vacuum former that allows to create many different objects for molds in minutes. Transform your ideas into reality.
It is powered by any vacuum cleaner and does not require any additional software or digital model manipulation. You can use a 3D printer or crafting by hand. The FormBox works best with thermoplastic sheets of 0.01 - 0.059 in thickness.
The FormBox works with any full-sized vacuum cleaner or shop-vac. Equipped with a built-in auto-vacuum system, connect it using an adapter that fits any standard vacuum cleaner, so you can use its suction to kick-start your own factory. When the trays are pulled down, an automatic trigger will turn on the suction of your connected vacuum cleaner.
If you use a 3D printer, you can create one design, and then use that object as a form for the Mayku FormBox. You can try hundreds of different materials to find the flawless design. From delicious chocolates to concrete architectural models.
How it works
Insert the plastic and set the temperature. A timer will be activated and the built-in speakers will alert you when the plastic is ready to be formed. A 200W ceramic heater with a range of 320 F to 644 F, and a dial to precisely set the correct temperature for your plastic to form.
