Electrical Specification:
• Operating power supply: 230 volt / 60 hertz / 3 phase

Press Time
• Pressing time depends on the type and thickness of the laminate, the press temperature, the adhesive formula and other factors. Due to the number of variants, it is impossible to accurately predict the press time.
• A pressing cycle of 150 seconds can be achieved with most standard 3DL’s.

Pressing Programs
(Single-sided lamination of a contoured substrate surface)
• Using the machine to press standard 3DL’s to the substrate
• Using the machine with a membrane to press veneer to the substrate
• Pressing 3DL without the membrane

 Pressing Area
(Net pressure chamber height = lower tray cavity + upper tray frame cavity)
• Maximum chamber height with a 2” deep tray is 5”, however, the ability to utilize that dimension will vary based on the geometry of the parts, and the thickness of the 3DL.
• Maximum usable area is 48” x 96”.
• Maximum part height = work piece height + pedestal/template height (recommended not to exceed 2.75”).

Pressing Materials
• Substrates: the machined profile of the substrate should be matched to the laminate, and the working parameters of the machine.
– MDF (double refined yields best definition)
– Particle board and other acceptable substrates.
• Laminating overlay material
– 3DL (3-dimensional laminate) like PVC, ABS, PO, PET, PETG, APET which are suitable for the pressing procedure
– Heat Transfer Foils
• Laminating Adhesives
– One-part and Two-part water based polyurethane dispersion
