Vinyl Presents Aims To Turn The Table On Overseas Vinyl Market
Portsmouth based Vinyl Presents are aiming to shake up the vinyl record market with their new state of the art manufacturing facility and an Aqua temperature control system is at the heart of the pressing process.
Aqua Cooling designed and installed their bespoke cooling system, as well as installing a steam heating system designed by others which works in-conjunction with the pressing machinery.
The process starts with the raw vinyl material being melted before being passed to the pressing plates that have metal stampers containing the music installed on each plate. The pressing plates are then heated with steam and squeeze the vinyl into shape and press the music onto the vinyl, chilled water quickly cools the plates so that the vinyl retains the required “record” shape. The excess vinyl is trimmed off and the records are automatically transported to cooling spindles ready for a night on the shelf before being hand sleeved and distributed to eagerly awaiting customers.
