Schools / colleges / universities

With prices starting at just £595 for a complete vacuum press system, the low cost and ease of use of the AirPress portable bag press make them ideal for schools and colleges and with space limited, the ability to store them away when not in use, a big advantage.

For real trouble free pressing, we designed the beautifully built BenchTop Press with schools in mind. This small format membrane press makes light work of pressing curved laminations or veneered panels and for clamp free holding those panels on the bench for routing or sanding check out the VacPots. They are a great add on once you have the vacuum pump.

Using our custom stair bags (long and narrow) you can produce perfect laminations without the need for dozens of clamps. Just slide the laminates inside the bag, fix in position on your drum former and switch on the Vacuum Pump.

For holding panels rigid on the bench, check out the AirPress VacPot clamping system.

Laminating and veneering produces an exquisite instrument and many of our customers say they prefer the sound produced by laminating rather than shaping solid wood.
