The heated vacuum press Sprinter Industrial is an outstanding machine with two connected vacuum presses and moveable heating hood. This vacuum membrane press is designed for serial production and industrial hot press applications. The main field of application for the Sprinter Industrial is woodworking, in particular flat and shaped wood panel veneering, laminating and bending plywood into moulded components. However, it is increasingly being used for hot press applications of plastic and composite materials.
The well-insulated heating hood with turbine convection heating elements and Global’s smart air distribution heats up to 140 ºC and reduces cure times of white glue (PVAc), PU and UF adhesives. The heating hood is equipped with a pneumatic lifting and lowering system and can easily be moved manually sideways.
Optional features for the composites industry
Moreover, the optional features PLC Automation System and Infrared Heating Lamps are ideal for the automotive, aviation and composites industries, where hot press applications of prepreg carbon fiber composite materials are replacing metal or aluminium parts. The automation system offers automatic production cycles and process monitoring with the possibility of temperature curves and vacuum pressure steps.
