Automated Vacuum Controller FAQs

Q: What would be the benefits of running this on a single press?

A: The Automated Vacuum Control System streamlines any operation regardless of the number of presses you are operating. It allows you to hands free maintain vacuum levels and switches the pump on and off. Checkout our videos on this system to get a more in-depth look at the features.

Q: Does this system come with the hose connections or is it sold separately?

A: The vacuum controller is ready to go, out of the box and includes all the fittings and hose needed to get started. If you have a large work station or unique configuration, you may want to purchase extra tubing. This kit includes 6ft.

Q: What vacuum pump do you recommend?

A: We recommend the following three pumps - based on what you will be pressing you will have to decide which will work best for you:

8-CFM Two-Stage Vacuum Pump

5-CFM Two-Stage Vacuum Pump

3 CFM Single Stage Pump

Q: The vacuum pump fitting doesn't match the easy connect NPT parts supplied. How do I make it work?

A: You will have to remove the flared fitting that your vacuum pump comes with standard and replace it with the 1/2" or 3/8" easy connect fitting supplied with your press depending on model. Most vacuum pumps are ACME threaded which is a little different than NPT. Once you remove the standard fitting it will rethread to work with the NPT included.
