Bienfang Vacuum Hot and Cold Press
Our 52″x 98″ Bienfang Vacuum Press is a professional mounting and laminating system designed to provide the highest quality results. Its basically two machines in one – a dry-mount press and cold vacuum frame. It allows for a quick professional application of dry mounting adhesives and laminates, as well as wet and spray adhesives.
Vacuseal Cold Press
An oldie but a goodie! We have been using this 40″x 60″ cold press for decades and it still works as good as new. We mainly use it for spray mount applications on a daily basis when we don’t need the larger Bienfang press. If you have art that needs mounted, give us a try, you will not be disappointed.
