Douthitt's Vacuum Frames

Bench on Stand
OPTION “X” is a controlled inverse air evacuation system which starts the evacuation of air in the center of the frame and then moves outward to the edges eliminating the trapping of air. It is over twice as fast as a conventional frame and quickly pays for itself in time saved and avoidance of remakes. Because of its absolute, consistent, repeatable electronically controlled air evacuation pattern, it will maintain better register than any other frame and will reduce your makeovers and scrap rate.
