ATF Semi Automatic Thermoforming machine (earlier referred to as the Super series) featuring in-line pre-heating, heating, large format forming, material transportation and sheet separation

Another old faithful of trade formers producing chocolate, biscuit box inserts and similar components that permits trimming of multiple sheets at a time on say the Ridat Roller Cutting Presses.

With its large forming area, the Ridat ATF’s allowed flexibility in mould design, low unit cost and high volume production.

It also finds favour with in-house manufacturers of building products like roofing & ventilation panels; underfloor heating panels; drainage (both roof & underground) and cut-off walls for contaminated land.

The larger model 4848ATF is available also as a pressure former.

Semi Automatic (referred to as Midmatic) Vacuum Former provides for automatic processing cycle complete with material heat, vacuum to mould the shape, cooling of the formed product and ejection from the mould, index of the vacuum formed  sheet and  in-line sheet separation for continued uninterrupted production

Ridat Midmatic Vacuum Formers has, since the early 70s, generally been the work horse of the trade formers throughout the UK (and many of the English speaking countries around the globe), until the introduction of the form-cut stack systems. Updated to current day standards, it is still the appropriate solution for small to medium volume production runs and even today can be found plugging away with many trade formers.

Ridat Midmatic Vacuum Formers together with Roller Press still form cost effective alternative to the high cost 3-stage inline thermoformers.
