C.R. Clarke R30 Sheet Press

Part No. R30

The C.R. Clarke R30 Sheet Press converts granulated thermoplastic material into a usable form using heat and pressure. As standard, the formed article is a flat plastic sheet, which can typically be used for vacuum forming, laser cutting, line bending etc.

There are also tools available as options, for making shaped parts.

As standard, the R30 produces a sheet size that is suitable for use on the C.R. Clarke 25FLB Vacuum Former. Other sizes of material can be produced using separately available heating trays.

Product Details


1. A removable material cassette is loaded with granules of the material to be pressed. For best results the granules are sprinkled uniformly over the base of the cassette.
2. The cassette is then loaded into the R30 sheet press, and clamped firmly between two temperature controlled aluminium hotplates. The heat and pressure causes the material granules to soften and fuse.
3. At the end of the pressing cycle, the material cassette is unloaded and allowed to cool. The formed sheet of material can then be removed and used.

Optional stands and cooling fan sets are available for the R30.
