Hot Press Heated Glass Top Vacuum Press

The Hot Press™ Heated Glass Top Vacuum Press is based on a patented, high tech heating system that has changed the way professionals dry mount. The top panel of the Heated Glass Top Vacuum Press is made up of two sheets of reinforced tempered glass. The inner surface of the lower sheet has an invisible conductive film embedded in it. A controlled electric current is passed through this conductive film creating a highly efficient heating system. A sensor on the glass monitors and controls the temperature by means of a digital thermostat. The glass is extremely smooth and scratch resistant.

The transparent top panel allows the operator to view materials during processing and correct misaligned work or folded back corners.

The Heated Glass Top Press handles a wide range of presentation materials from foam board and wood to photos, art prints and delicate fabrics. The Hot Press brand is well regarded by picture framers and other finishing professionals for its ability to produce consistent, high quality results.

All models feature an automatic electronic timer with a manual override switch and vacuum pressure adjustment capabilities. Upon completion of the cycle, vacuum pressure is automatically released and the timer resets itself.


  • Glass top allows most applications to remain visible even when the press is closed
  • State of the art heating system that ensures fast, even heating
  • Programmable vacuum cycle for consistent results
  • Wide range of sizes to suit most applications
  • Swift accurate temperature adjustment
