Are you interested in producing special workpieces very easily with a modern vacuum press? Then you've come to the right place!

My name is Ruth Koppenberger and I am the CEO and owner of Columbus.

You may be wondering what makes us unique?

From our customers’ point of view, these are the following 3 facts:

1.    The digital application training  

My father - master carpenter in the 3rd generation - invented the vacuum bag back in the 1970s and thus laid the foundation for today's vacuum technology in the trade. Since then we have collected the application knowledge and combined all tips and tricks into a digital master manual. All of our customers receive this training for free with their vacuum press. This means you don't have to learn to your cost in the form of material and time, and you also have extensive knowledge of adhesives, materials, mold making, etc. at your disposal.

2.    Our patented modular system

Depending on the application, you can start with a vacuum table with a flap opening and manufacture your bent workpieces by laminated bending and veneering. If you also want to form solid surface materials and other plastic plates in the future, want to press higher parts or prefer simpler operation, then you can easily upgrade the press. Just as your business develops.

3.    Made in Austria

We are proud to manufacture our machines in Austrian engineering quality.
There are already more than 1500 of our vacuum presses in carpentry shops, where they are usually used every day. Due to the stable construction, the presses do not break and are also maintenance-free. For you, this means no ongoing and no hidden costs in your production. With a vacuum press from Columbus, you will be able to produce the quality your customers expect from you for the rest of your life.

If this goes in the direction you have in mind, simply fill out the form below or send me an e-mail and I will make you an offer for a vacuum press tailored to your needs.

I look forward to you!

Ruth Koppenberger
