IF-2000 FC - Ski and Snowboard Press

The IF-2000 FC is our mid range production ski and snowboard laminating press.

It is suitable for both the medium to higher volume production user and die hard hobby/enthusiast DIY ski and snowboard builders. This machine is a full featured production laminating press based on the presses Lindsay designed for Powderstick Snowboards, Option Snowboards and dozens of other companies since the mid 1980's.

The IF-2000 FC features heated top and bottom forms that are temperature controlled by a digital PID control unit that allows various ramp and heat cycles to be programmed or it can be used with simple set temperature operation.

The daily capacity of the IF-2000 FC is dependent on the operating temperature and the cure time of  the resin system used. This is typically 2 - 4 boards per hour or 2-3 pair of skis hour based on 60-70 degree C temperature using the Action Sports Extreme epoxy system and depending on the complexity of the layup - other epoxies will vary in terms of cure time and can allow faster or slower cure cycles and resin pot life.

This machine features an all steel I-beam "Fixed Cavity" frame design (hence the FC designation) that results in a very stiff, high performance frame when space and weight are not as much of a concern. The fixed cavity frame design is less expensive than our LC ("Lift Cylinder") designs and is your best choice when you demand top performance on a modest budget.

The IF-2000 FC ski and snowboard press features an all pneumatic "air bladder/caterpillar track" top form assembly for unlimited ski or board thickness profiles, adjustable length, various camber and rocker profiles and more (1 rocker/camber profile included, others can be ordered).
