      Love this thing!! Worth every penny!!

      I purchased this as a replacement for the one I bought 5 or so years ago from HD when they were in the original location. (Original style) I cracked a couple fittings on the old one and decided I didn’t want to re-plum it again so I decided it was time to upgrade. I am so glad I did!!! Love this thing! Had it up and running in less than 15 minutes with no issues whatsoever! Worth every penny. Also, very easy to adjust and add additional tables. One thing to keep in mind, the fittings are unusual and you may not be able to find them even in a big city. Buy what you need from them. It will be worth it!! Great service and always ready to help. HD team rocks!

      Automated Vacuum Controller

      Works like a champ. Very easy to set up and shuts the vacuum pump off when vacuum has done its job. Very happy with this unit compared to the old-style control system.

      Ever since I hooked up the HD Automated vacuum control system up, it has been operating flawlessly. The cut and insert pipe fittings are effective and easy to put together. Vacuum forming in now is set it and move on the the next task until cool enough to handle. I’m thinking I will add a second station to do vacuum forming off the same unit.

      This vacuum controller is a must!

      We were running our vacuum pump ragged on just one press. We ordered the HD300 and this vacuum controller and couldn't be happier. We plan on ordering another one when we expand the holster production again. Brandyn Langston Lead Gunsmith Galloway Precision.

      If you use a vacuum

      If you use a vacuum press and vacuum pump, this needs to be your next upgrade. Make sure to buy one that can hook in a surge tank. You won't regret it. I have yet to be unhappy with a HD purchase.

      The vacuum control I received

      The vacuum control I received did not work at first. I thought I was doing something wrong or that there was a leak in the system that did not allow it to run. The troubleshooting instructions that came with it were helpful and I was able to get it to work and has not given me problems since. If you have a press/presses, this is a must have!!

      Thanks for your feedback! Sometimes the settings get jumbled in shipping and some minor adjustments have to be made at setup. Glad to hear you were able to get it up and running with the instructions included!

      I recently purchased a HD

      I recently purchased a HD 200 Vacuum press with AVCS, Easy Connect Pump to Press Kit, and Curved Jig. Shipping was fast and all items came packaged very well. After reviewing HD Industrials excellent on-line set up videos, I had the system up and running in less then an hour and had my first successful mold shortly after. I'm still learning the ins ad outs of vacuum forming but am very happy with all of these products so far. I am glad I got the easy connect system so that I could get the system up and running so quickly but I will be changing it out for a more permanent pvc based system in the future. I highly recommend HD Industrial's products.

      Great Product, we have been able to increase our production times significantly and our product is very consistent.

      Works as described. No need

      Works as described. No need to fiddle with anything. Plug it in and go.

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

      A: If you have not purchased an HD Vacuum Press, you will need to purchase a Vacuum Pump Conversion Kit separately to get the fittings needed convert your pump to the compatible fittings. All HD Vacuum Presses include the neccesary fittings needed to convert a vacuum pump to easy connect.


      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: Can this be used to maintain an 8 inHG pulled vacuum? (21 inHG absolute). We are looking to perform accelerated aging at high altitudes and need to maintain a 3000 meter simulated altitude for 137 days.

      A: Yes, it should work for that purpose but we would like some additional details on this to make sure. Please give us a call at 281-547-0330 ext 103 to discuss this further.


      Q: Is there are 220v-240v version of this for Australia?

      A: We only offer this in 115V. You would need power adaptor/converter to convert 220V to 115V that you would plug the controller into.


      Q: Can the switch be adjusted down anymore? Looking to get down to 29.

      A: The unit comes preset to cycle on below 22 InHG and off at 25 InHG. You can adjust it in either direction as much as you want (will always have a 3 InHG differential).


      Q: How do I set up the Automated Vacuum Control System?

      A: Download Instruction Manual Here


      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.
