Vacuum Press

Why choose the Vacuum Press?

Our Vacuum Press offers users the opportunity to utilise the only vacuum press of this kind in the UK to create a range of panel products through the consistent and efficient vacuum process.

A process designed for optimal performance, the Vacuum Press offers exceptional planarity and uniformed 9.5 t/m2 pressure guaranteeing a high quality finished product. As a result, no deformation will occur within press and panels will receive an even amount of pressure throughout.

Additionally, the whole process saves space by allowing users to assemble and press multiple panels within the same area.

How will you use our Vacuum Press? 

Capable of processing a range of panel types and sizes our Vacuum Press offers exceptional flexibility in what you can produce.

The low investment costs associated with our Vacuum Press will enable your organisation to take a gradual approach to CLT and panel production in general. The low automation in the early stages of development can be increased as demand for your product rises within the market.
