Italpresse "Trans-Former" Convertible Hot Press for Lamination
Vacuum Press, Thermoforming Press
The TRANS-FORMER features state-of-the-art "membrane-less" technology. Working without a membrane makes financial sense. It saves thousands of dollars per year in replacing silicon membranes. The TRANS-FORMER reliably laminates films as thin as 10 mil (250 micron) thickness with beautiful results.
The TRANS-FORMER utilizes both vacuum below the film and positive air pressure above the film to form the film into even the most detailed profile with superior definition. Deep, intricate profiles and recessed finger pulls are no problem for the TRANS-FORMER.
The TRANS-FORMER is available with an optional magnetic pin pedestal system to eliminate the hassle and cost of using riser panels under each component when 3-D thermoforming PVC films. You can also add a 2-roll PVC unwinding stand for convenience or a second loading tray to significantly increase the potential output of the machine.
