Welcome to Evans Midwest, where innovation meets efficiency with our industrial vacuum press laminating solutions. Our specialized Greco line of 3D shuttle and clamshell style laminating presses is designed to cater to a broad spectrum of laminating needs. Whether you’re handling flexible or rigid vinyls, KYDEX® thermoplastic sheets, surf(x)®, or polystyrene, our machines are built to deliver exceptional performance. Our commitment to quality is evident in every product, ensuring that you receive the best laminating experience possible.

At the heart of our vacuum presses, like the VP 400C/500C Clamshell Models, lies our advanced infrared heating system, equipped with proprietary 375 watt “DuraLamp” heating elements. This system provides consistent, uniform heat distribution, crucial for high-quality lamination. Additionally, our non-contact IR sensor allows for precise temperature monitoring, ensuring optimal results every time. With various sizes available, including 4×4 and 4×8-foot options, we cater to different scale operations, ensuring there’s a perfect fit for your business needs.

Bottom line? We help you laminate better, increase productivity, and improve quality.
