We are excited to introduce our first non-membrane vacuum form press, The DIY Pro Press! Now you can have the unparalleled detail and definition of non-membrane vacuum forming at a reasonable price. The work area (8"x8") is admittedly smaller than other former options, but it is plenty of space for most fold-over, hybrid-style, single side pancake or mag carrier work. Non-membrane forming does generate more material waste than membrane forming (we recommend you use a minimum 10"x10" size raw sheet stock in this press) but the results are worth it.
This former works by using the hot sheet stock itself to create a seal between the frame and base. The vacuum system then evacuates the air under the stock and the ambient air pressure outside the stock forces the hot material down around the mold. This process produces the highest level of detail and definition possible in thermo-forming without mechanical assistance.
The DIY Pro Press will require assembly. All needed hardware and instructions are included. The base of the press has four mounting points to secure the press to your work bench if desired. The main vacuum port is threaded to accept any 1/4" NPT Male fitting, no fittings are included. The press can be used with or without a surge tank. A blank 3/16" plywood work plate is included and you can vent it and/or attach your tooling to it as you see fit. You can also remove it and run your tooling directly in the recessed vacuum pocket.
Be sure and check out our Pro Drones! The perfect compliment to your Pro Press - CNC tooling precision without the CNC price.
As always, you'll find the perfect holster when you Do It Yourself!
