The heated vacuum press Sprinter Professional is a versatile vacuum membrane press equipped with a powerful heating hood. The machine has been specially developed for vacuum press applications with heat treatment (Hot pressing) and 3D foil lamination (3D PVC foiling / wrapping).
The well-insulated heating hood, with integrated turbine convection heating elements and smart air distribution by turbine ventilation, heats up to 140 ºC—features which enable a reduction in cure times of white glue (PVAc), PU and UF adhesives. To provide high-level detail in PVC foil lamination, the vacuum press is equipped with a powerful oil-lubricated vacuum pump that achieves higher vacuum pressure than oil-free vacuum pumps. The PLC automation system, operated by touchscreen display, comes with three production modes—Hot Pressing, Cold Pressing and PVC Foiling—and can be customised to meet the individual requirements of the customer.
In addition, for demanding press applications, the vacuum press can be equipped with infrared heating lamps and a heating/cooling platen worktop including programmed press cycles with heating, cooling and vacuum curves.
