Vac-U-Clamp, a manufacturer of heated and cold vacuum laminating and forming equipment, announced the introduction of its newest product, the FT-800 thermo foil press.
The FT-800 is a “clam shell” type and is specifically designed for smaller shops or where shop space is limited or as a back-up press for larger production shops who encounter short run requirements.
It features a 52” x 100” working area, a see-through window into an illuminated interior, 18,000 watts of heating with quartz-type infrared heaters, according to the company.
It also features unobstructed left, right and front access; an oil-cooled, 16 cfm vacuum pump coupled to a 30-gallon evacuation tank, and zinc-plated steel platen and up front controls.
An upgraded version featuring PLC touch-screen controls is also available.
The entire press is constructed from aircraft grade tubular aluminum with powder-coated steel covering panels. The overall size of the FT-800 is 103” wide, 56” deep and 49” high. The platen height is a comfortable 33”, including casters that add 4” in height, according to the company.
