Advantages of Columbus vacuum bags

Vacuum bag
  • Vacustart is the lowest-priced model from Columbus and offers beginners an excellent opportunity to use the innovative vacuum press technology profitably. Furthermore, it amortizes very quickly even at low utilization.
  • The vacuum bag is ideal for the processing of large workpieces and thus offers ambitious DIYs a variety of possibilities.
  • The robust but glass-clear transparent top side allows slipped layers or veneers to be recognized immediately and allows rapid intervention during the production process in the event of an emergency. This guarantees production safety and prevents rejects.
  • The vacuum bag 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.
  • The vacuum bag can be sealed vacuum-tight with a wooden strip and clamps from your own workshop. This guarantees best press results that inspire customers.
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.
