MOLD PLACEMENT GUIDE
You can form objects on the EXO-FORMER 24's FORMING TABLE that are longer
than 21.5" by simply using the diagonal of the forming table as illustrated
in Figure 1. The example shown depicts how a 6" wide by 27" long ship
hull mold can fit easily on the FORMING TABLE. You should always
remember to leave adequate space between the mold and the edge of the
FORMING TABLE, because the warm plastic always needs to contact the edge of
the FORMING TABLE to create a tight air seal.
THERMOPLASTIC SHEET ECONOMY
To achieve the greatest thermoplastic sheet economy, and therefore the least
amount of wasted plastic, one often needs to place a number of molds on the
FORMING TABLE at the same time. For instance, if you plan on making
multiple formed parts, it would be unwise to place a single mold in the
center of the FORMING TABLE as shown in figure 2. The preferred method
would be to place multiple molds on the FORMING TABLE as shown in figure 3.
