"Air-Thing" Pneumatic Demolding Tool for Bowls/Sinks and Modulars

The Pneumatic Air-Thing is an essential sturdy tool used to demold marble bowl castings from the mold. These tools utiilize a compressed air supply attached to the tool to quickly and effortlessly release the cast part from the mold surface - greatly simplifying demolding of bowls, sinks and modular vanities.

Air Thing Outie 02008 325

Two types of Air Things are available:

  • Air Thing for use with Polydomes/Polycollars for demolding vanity bowls when polydomes are used ing the casting process

  • Air Thing for use with Drain Bosses to demold bowls when an aluminum drain boss is used in the casting process. Drain Bosses are often used in modular vanities and floating bowls instead of a polydome, captive nut assembly or suction cup assembly.


Cup Lifters

Easily de-mold heavy cast parts like bathtubs and panels with these 2 and 4-cup lifters.

The process of demolding large, heavy panels from their molds can be effortlessly accomplished with these Panel Lifters.

Gruber Systems Gel coat Curing Tunnel
The Gel Coat Heat Curing Tunnel is an excellent way to accelerate the cure time for gelcoated molds. Utilizing a heater and blower to move warm air across the surface of molds, curing times can be cut by more than 50%*, while at the same time enabling a better, more durable cure.
 
Gruber Systems Variable Speed Gelcoat Tunnel (VSGT)

Leaning into a gelcoat tunnel to either pull or shove a heavy mold down the line will become a “task from the past” with our Variable Speed Gelcoat Tunnel (VSGT). This tunnel provides precise and automatic movement of molds through the gelcoat curing process. By automatically moving the molds through the tunnel, labor associated with mold moving can be reduced and precise gelcoat cure times can be obtained.

Gruber Systems Post Cure Heat Room

The Post Cure Heat Room is designed to accelerate the complete polymerization (curing) of solid surface panels prior to finishing.
