TF-2000 Ski and Snowboard Press

TF-2000 Ski and Snowboard Press

The TF-2000 is our entry level heated ski and snowboard laminating press.

It is suitable for both the medium volume production user and advanced hobby/enthusiast DIY ski and snowboard builders. The TF-2000 is a heated press design (heat on both the top and bottom of the ski or board) based on our more advanced press designs, but featuring a smaller. lighter frame suitable for smaller locations.

The daily capacity is dependent on the operating temperature, and and cure time of the resin system used. Typically this is 3 - 4 boards per hour or 2 - 3 pair of skis per hour (assuming a 2 at a time ski press design, we also make single ski presses) Press efficiency especially when laying skis can be increased with 2 people, as it takes longer for an operator to lay up 2 skis than 1 snowboard.

This machine features our unique triple "Tube Frame" design (hence the name TF) that enables us to build a stiff but relatively small and lightweight frame so the press can be used in small workshops and workspaces. The TF-2000 can even be used in your basement or garage provided you have adequate electricity (see specs below).

The TF-2000 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).
