Manual Acrylic Heat Bender for Plastic Light Box



Description of Manual Acrylic Heat Bender for Plastic PVC Light Box

• The acrylic heat bender is the core part of bending machine tools. You can assemble various kinds of ideal practical acrylic bender with this heater.
• Processing Material: Acrylic, Plastic, PVC, Plexiglass.
• Used for: This acrylic heat bender can be widely used in decoration engineering, sign making, display cabinet, aquarium wrapping, lighting LED channel letter, bending the supermarket shelves, curtain wall, large light box, acrylic plates and plastic plates.

Details of Manual Acrylic Heat Bender

Steps of Usage:

Temperature tips:
• The temperature at the central of heating tube is the highest, which can be up to 500°, and greater the distance from the central the lower the temperature.
• Actually, the appropriate temperature for bending acrylic is about 240°.
• The heater can work 24 hours a day on the circumstance that the water temperature is not high.

Comparison of Manual Acrylic Heat Bender

Water outlet material
The copycat are using the copper water outlet, the bronze looks really good and I think everyone think copper part will be better than others, but you should know the basic thing is the water will corrode copper and make it rusty and get holes, which will cause water leak.
Beside this copper part price is not higher than our nylon material part.
The water oulet of our acrylic bender is Nylon material, the reason we use this material is this material do not inflate during water current flow and it do not have water corrosion problems.
Alchrome Heating wire inside
The copycat heating wire width is not even and its material is not pure Alchrome, if the material is not pure, that will cause part of different temperature. It cause part of Acrylic is soft and other part is still hard. It will cause second time bending or part of Acrylic crack. The heating wire of our acrylic bender is made by screw pitch which will insure the width and have even temperature to bend acrylic sheet.
Copycat’s thermostat is common thermostat without heat dissipation base. Thermolator of our acrylic bender is Solid-state thermostat, theirs are common thermostat We also design 4 stands below this thermostat to make sure has better heat dissipation.

VS-BT series acrylic bending machine heater has wide applications, such as lighting LED channel letter making, sign making, display cabinet, supermarket shelves, curtain wall, large light box, acrylic plates and plastic plates making, etc. VS-HD-BC06 Model Sign Letter Tool is mainly used for lighting luminous channel letters or characters.

VS-BT series acrylic bending machine heater is core part of bending machine, it soft the acrylic, you need to bend acrylic by hands. It is space saving, low cost. VS-SB series acrylic bending machine bends acrylic by electric, with super high precision, but it is expensive relatively.
