Electric vacuum press systems - Pressing, veneering and laminating
Automatic electric vacuum press systems as well as continuous vacuum pumps from 1 to 10 CFM
Automatic Electric Systems
Automatic electric systems use rotary vane electric vacuum pumps to create vacuum and an electric controller to maintain the correct vacuum level. The Electric Controller is adjustable and automatically regulates the vacuum level within the Vacuum Bag or Frame Press. Rotary vane pumps produce 26.6" Hg. and are manufactured by a well-respected company who specializes in producing high quality electric vacuum pumps.
Quality VAKuum Products, Inc. builds their electric systems with the pump and electric controller as separate units. This provides several advantages over a single unit built inside of a large metal box. First, keeping the units separate allows the woodworker to sit the pump on the floor or under a bench, allowing the controller to be place on top of the bench. The gauge is now easily seen by the operator and any adjustments to the pump can now be made easily. Also, the possibility of the pump overheating is dramatically reduced, especially in shops without air conditioning. Metal enclosures will retain heat, possibly causing the pumps thermal overload to react and shut off. If this happens the pressing could be lost. Q.V.P.'s design helps prevent this from happening. Another advantage is if the controller fails, just unplug the pump from the controller and plug it directly into the wall and save your job. Also if the pump wears out you can use it with any other 3/4 h.p. or less electric pump.
The automatic electric system is the best system for those who do not have an air compressor, or do not want an air-powered vacuum system.

Manual Electric Systems
If funds are limited we offer a lower-priced manual system which can be upgraded to an automatic system in the future. This is a good starter system. The manual system consists of a rotary vane electric vacuum pump, a vacuum bag, and all the accessories needed to manually veneer and laminate. At any time, an electric controller can be added. You simply plug your pump into the controller and start the system. Without an electric controller, the manual pump must be run continuously, or be turned on and off by the operator. The pump has a rated life of 2 years of continuous operation per the manufacturer.
