I purchased this intent on making a product and found that my design wasn't conducive to vacuum forming, however; I have some other ideas to utilize it . I "played" with it to become familiar and it seems to work great with no problems. It was packed and shipped with great care and it shows in the condition when I unpacked it. Seems to be a quality machine.
I’ve only used it twice so far, but this thing is Amazing. Easy to set up and is ready to use within 10 minutes of unboxing. Very happy with my purchase.
Q: I am looking for a vacuum former to make scale airplanes models, would this machine work for me? How does this machine heat up the material to be formed?
A: Our vacuum presses do not have built in heaters. You have to heat your material externally and then transfer it to the press to be molded. There are many different ways to heat materials depending on the type and thickness. Heat press, flash dryer, oven, toaster oven, etc.
Q: My HD Press won't hold vacuum when I close the valve. How can I troubleshoot and fix this?
A: Check the membrane for dirt and clean it with a damp sponge. A dirty membrane can effect the seal. Check for holes in your silicone membrane. If you have formed anything with sharp edges that were not properly covered the silicone membrane can be punctured. Take the heat sink off the press, wet your thumb and place it over the port and pull a vacuum. This will narrow down where the leak is. If the vacuum holds with your thumb over the port, then you can rule out the plumbing. If it doesn't, then the leak will be somewhere between the port and your pump. Check all the plumbing connections to make sure they are securely seating in the fitting. If you can't find the source after this, please contact us for help.
