LEAFCASTING MACHINE

This new leaf casting machine has been developed after years of experience in designing and marketing leaf casting and paper infill machines for paper conservators. It incorporates a number of new design features, which when combined with its large casting area offer the conservators much more than any other leaf casting machine such as:

 

  • Large casting area for large and multiple paper infill repairs
  • Siphonic action for optimum infill
  • Powerful and quiet centrifugal water pump
  • Top sprinkler box enables low velocity rapid fill
  • Bottom fill enables safe increase in water level with document in place
  • Combined top and bottom fill ability
  • Separate water level adjustment facility for accurate fill levels
  • Holding tank allows quick drain down facility for easy access
  • Flush support grid ridge allows simple masking and sealing with no pulp leakage
  • Internal vacuum with speed and timer control gives high quality results of leaf casting
  • Low maintenance and easy cleaning
  • Mobile rubber tyred casters with foot operated brake
  • Operation Manual
  • CE Approved

 

The way it works is the machine consists of a casting tank and holding tank. Water is pumped into the casting tank first from the holding tank, housed below the casting area. Pulp is then mixed with the water in the casting tank containing the paper to be infilled. During the casting process, the pulp is removed from the water through the openings of the document being repaired and is held in place by a filter mesh placed below the damaged paper.
