    The HD Press is a totally new take on membrane thermoplastic vacuum forming technology. The HD Press is made out of high quality cast acrylic, designed for daily frequent use. It is the only kydex vacuum former press of its kind.

    We use a high heat membrane material secured to the top of the press by super strong neodymium magnets that makes this the easiest to replace membrane on the market. With the use of a wooden heat-sink over the vacuum grid, the press can stand up to repeated, back to back, all day thermo-forming.

    The membrane seals on the raised edge around the vacuum chamber with the magnet lock system. The press includes a vacuum gauge and a 1/2 inch brass ball valve. It is designed to have as little air volume as possible to apply a quick vacuum to a hot work piece. The HD Press space conscience design has built in plumbing for a plug and play application. All you have to do is hook up your vacuum pump and get started. With these built in features and its ease of use, the HD Vacuum Press sets a new industry standard.

    We have developed a cutting edge kydex vacuum press with a premium one piece leak proof design and ultra sleek look. The back is precision machined out of one solid piece so it won't warp over time. Unlike other standard materials used on traditional presses such as wood and PVC this Vacuum Former is crack resistant. You won't find quality like this elsewhere!

    The HD Press vacuum press was built with the intended application of making custom gun holsters and knife sheaths using thermoformed plastics (such as Kydex and Boltoron). It has unlimited applications including Hobbyists, Orthotics, small prototyping and much more. Our goal at HD Industrial Design is to bring you the highest quality American made solutions at an affordable price.

    We back this product with a 90 day warranty on material and workmanship. This does not include consumables like membranes and heat-sinks.
