Membrane Presses

Vacuum membrane presses differ from portable bag press systems by using a high stretch rubber membrane attached to a metal frame to apply the pressure as opposed to a polyurethane or vinyl bag. The membrane frame is supported by gas springs enabling free access to the platen eliminating the risk of damaging veneers when loading up a bag. In addition, since the rubber membrane is attached to the rigid frame, it cannot get trapped under the laminates on a curved former as can happen with a vacuum bag. This allows for one-man operation and guarantees fault free laminating. We offer a range of membrane presses from the compact BenchTop Press, ideal for schools or musical instrument makers, the affordable Self-Assembly BenchPress for those customers requiring a large high quality membrane press at a budget price and the top of the range new BenchPress, probably the most advanced vacuum press of its kind on the market today.

"I would just like to write and tell you how pleased I am with the self assembly bench press.

It has been fantastic and has allowed me to do such a huge range of different projects.

Working on yacht interiors I do a lot of veneer and laminate work and it has proved invaluable."
