The heated vacuum press Sprinter Vertical is a superior 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).
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. The outstanding vertical lifting-lowering system of the membrane frame and heating hood prevents materials from sliding over the mould while closing the membrane frame. It also offers easy access from all sides, which is particularly important for pressing large, complicated 3D shapes.
To provide high-level detail in 3D PVC foil lamination, the sprinter vertical 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, is programmed with three production modes—Hot Pressing, Cold Pressing and PVC Foiling—and can be customised to meet the individual requirements of each customer.
