Custom Thermoforming Ovens and Equipment

A proven leader in designing and manufacturing thermoforming ovens and equipment

Uniform heating is one of the most important elements in the thermoforming process.  Blasdel Enterprises designs and manufactures the most uniformly heated thermoforming ovens in the industry.  For over 35 years, we have been the leader in supplying infrared thermoforming ovens to the glass mat thermoplastic (GMT) and thermoplastic industry.

Our thermoforming ovens have precise temperature control and quick processing capabilities to allow for flexibility when processing multiple blank sizes.  The approximate cure cycle and optimal curing temperature required for manufacturing your part can be thoroughly evaluated prior to the design phase in our testing facility.  We have multiple ovens with different types of emitters to determine the best infrared emitter for your application.  Our thermoforming ovens are controlled using either PID temperature controllers or PLC systems which integrate with our conveyor controls.   For maximum flexibility, you would specify the design for zoning the heating zones to optimize your thermoforming process.  For example, if you are processing multiple part sizes, heating zones can be designed to be powered down, thus reducing your power load.

We utilize a heavy duty non-marking stainless steel belt.  An auxiliary exit conveyor can be added for prototyping or for quick unloading of parts.  We help you determine the number of indexing zones while keeping in mind your press time.  Blasdel’s thermoforming oven systems can be used for heating, GMT, ABS, SMC, carbon fiber, reinforced fiberglass plastics, thermoplastics, and others.  Our conveyorized oven systems integrate seamlessly with your thermoforming equipment.

Blasdel Enterprises designs and builds a pick and place robot for automatic loading.  With your input, the loader is designed either to load the oven from the front or side according to the specifications and layout of the thermoforming system. For situations where space is limited, Blasdel designs a shuttle system with the ability to load and unload from the same end.

All Blasdel thermoforming equipment is custom designed to your needs and we work closely with your thermoforming process to insure that you are getting the best and correct equipment.  See some of our oven designs on YouTube.
