Advantages of Columbus vacuum bags

Vacuum bag
  • Vacuflex is the high-quality version of the Columbus vacuum bags and guarantees longevity and production safety even when used at the highest level. Furthermore, it amortizes very quickly even at low utilization.
  • The vacuum bag is ideal for processing very large workpieces and thus also a perfect complement to a vacuum press. All Columbus presses are equipped with a connector, so that Vacuflex can be directly connected to and operated with them.
  • The extremely robust, reinforced material is resistant against wear or tear, even during industrial use, what minimizes downtime and cost of wearing parts.
  • Vacuflex is welded on 3 sides and contains an air suction line, to which an 8 m³ high-performance vacuum pump can be connected.
  • It needs no space while it is not used and can be stowed away everywhere very easily.
Vacuum pump
  • The high-performance vacuum pumps from Columbus are 100 % oil-free. While conventional oil-lubricated vacuum pumps spread their lubricating oil throughout the entire room as a harmful and surface-contaminating oil mist, Columbus dry-running rotary vane pumps ensure clean and safe production facilities for people, materials and environment.
  • High-performance vacuum pumps from Columbus are maintenance-free. This means no expense for servicing - neither time nor cost.
