A new corner-guided forming station is available for CS and SRS continuous thermoformers from Brown Machine LLC, Beaverton, Mich. Guiding of the upper and lower platens is on the four corners instead of on-center directly in line with the toggles. Corner guiding improves stability and precision, according to Brown. The forming station is a frame with 1.5-in. slab side plates to minimize deflection. Independently driven top and bottom platens are guided by 16 high-precision linear bearings with two bearings on each corner of the platens. Tel: (989) 435-7741 . www.brown-machine.com
