GN915 Plug-Assist Thermoformer

The GN915 is designed and engineered with our customers in mind. We don’t just assemble off-the-shelf machinery; we engineer and create custom configurations that fit our customers' needs to a “T.” This high-speed plug assist form/cut/stack thermoformer is designed to perform beyond expectations. This innovative BMG product solution uses movable top and bottom platens to form and cut parts precisely and offers the largest platen configuration available. With the input of customers and toolmakers, BMG developed the GN915 to provide industry-leading, cost-effective, and high-speed part production that leads in all categories. The most distinctive features of the GN915 are the high degree of automation as well as the easy-to-use tool change system, which reduces downtime for machine reset. Time is money, and BMG realizes the need for speed and functionality.

This all-star can handle it all, capable of forming CPET, PET, PP, HIPS, OPS, PVC, and more blends, including CPLA, PLA, and other biodegradable materials. If you are looking to be able to realize and tell a better sustainability story, while lessening your carbon footprint, then this engineering masterpiece can be the answer to your current and future needs. The GN915 is extremely flexible and can be combined with scrap grinders, padding systems, and inline packing systems to complete your production custom-configured thermoforming line.
