How to Build a Vacuform (vacuum form) Machine

Vacuform Machine Final Assembly & Test

June 23 @ June 23 - June 23

The two main components of our homemade vacuform machine are complete and now it’s time to put them together and connect the wiring. Before we can test it, we’ll have to build a quick frame to clamp our plastic to that we’ll transfer from the heating elements to the platen in one smooth movement.


  1. Determining the Height Between the Heat Box & Vacuum Box
  2. Attaching the 2 Components with Aluminum C-channel
  3. Assembling the Frame for the Plastic Sheet
  4. Wiring the 2 Components Together
  5. Testing & Fine-tuning


If you want to follow along, here’s what you’ll need:

Aluminum C-channel
Power Drill
Wood Screws
Bolts & Nuts
