Brown® SP-Series

Pressure Shuttle Thermoformers

HIGH PRODUCT DEFINITION - QUCK CHANGEOVERS

Shuttle systems are an excellent choice for forming large products with heavy-gauge materials, ideal for shorter runs and frequent changeovers. The Brown SP-Series adds pressure to the shuttle vacuum process giving you the ability to achieve greater product detail. In addition to the variety of standard vacuum forming processing techniques, the Brown SP is equipped with the strongest platen structures in the industry. The superior deflection rating makes it possible to run high-tonnage applications such as twin-sheet forming and in-mold trimming. The machines utilize the latest open architecture programming, non-proprietary hardware and incorporate the highest quality readily available components. The Brown SP-Series is built stronger to last longer, giving you a competitive edge in your industry.
