For shipping purposes we removed the cooling fans, you can reinstall them at the rail that is under the top back bar of the top platen assembly, you will see that there are two sets of Allen screws. We also removed the top cylinders, we left a mark on the top of the frame to show location and also you will find the securing screws, after you have placed the cylinders secure the rod to the two aluminum plates of the top platen and also connect the two sets of blue airlines, shorts to bottom, longs to top.

Air connection: In the back of the machine, besides the electrical cabinet there is a filter regulator, you connect your air supply to it, maintain at all times an air pressure not less than 60 PSI.

The vacuum pump is mounted on top of the receiver, position it at a location where is convenient to you, from the motor there is a power cord, in the left side of the enclosure there is an unused Romex connector, thread the power cord thru it and connect it to the three pole load protector located inside the main control panel towards the bottom almost on the right side, there is a label that reads “Connect Pump Here”.

In the back of the machine is located the vacuum valve, from it we left a vacuum hose, connect it to the tank, there is a label on the tank that reads connect hose here

Electrical connection: open the main electrical cabinet, on the top left-hand side, there is a power distribution block, connect to it your 240, 3 phase power supply. Before you turn power on to the machine check the transformer on the bottom right-hand side of the cabinet is wired correctly, meaning high voltage going in, 120 going out.

On the side of the main electrical cabinet, there are three selector switches, on-off with their corresponding indicating lights.

The top one turns power on to the machine, the second downturns on the heaters, and the third downturns on the vacuum pump.

To test the machine, make sure the air is connected. Turn on the power on selector switch (top one).

To test the rotation of the vacuum pump, briefly turn on the third selector switch (Vacuum pump on). On the side of the vacuum tank, there is a vacuum gauge, the needle of the gauge should move up, counterclockwise. If the needle does not move, then you need to swap two of the power feeding wires. You can do it at the bottom of the pump overload protector. This one is the furthest to the right and is the only one with 3 poles and wire black, red, and white coming out of it. Before you do that make sure power has been disconnected from the wall.
