Speedprint to offer VacuNest Tooling Solution on its printer platforms
Dec 29, 2005
Speedprint Technology Ltd., a division of Blakell Europlacer Group, announces that it is now offering Novatec's VacuNest Shape Memory Tool solution on its printer platforms through an OEM supply agreement.
VacuNest is a shape memory tool that combines the benefits of a custom tooling plate with the versatility of pins. An antistatic membrane covers a foam former surrounded by polymer granules. Simply place a golden board onto the modules, press down, pull a vacuum and the memory of the board shape profile is held. The chambers are profiled to the shape of the underside of the board - on activation of the vacuum this shape is now held. Simple, secure and a custom board support is created within seconds. The shape will be held for weeks/days/months until the vacuum is released, whereupon the modules return to their original form, awaiting a new set up for the next version of board.
