Used- Great Working Condition

The FT-800 ThermoFoil Vacuum Press is a “clam shell” type thermofoil press specifically designed for smaller shops or where shop space is limited or as a back-up press for larger production shops which encounter short run requirements. The FT-800 Thermofoil Vacuum Press takes "Hot Vacuum Press" technology to the highest level of performance found in vacuum foil laminating and vacuum forming. It features a 52” x 100” working area, a see-through window into an illuminated interior, 18,000 watts of heating with quartz-type infrared heaters make this model truly the ultimate among Heated Vacuum Presses. Unobstructed left, right and front access, an oil cooled, 16 cfm vacuum pump coupled to a 30 gallon evacuation tank. Zinc plated steel platen and up front controls. An upgraded version featuring “plc” touch screen controls is also available.

The entire press is constructed from aircraft grade tubular aluminum with powder coated steel covering panels. The overall size of the FT-800 Thermo+Foil is 103” wide, 56” deep and 49” high. The platen height is a comfortable 33” including casters, which add 4” in height.
