The Miniature Suction Platforms complement the functionality of the larger Willard Suction Tables to safely and accurately accomplish localised treatment, often without the need to remove a canvas from its stretcher.
These platforms are developed mainly for work on easel paintings, but also cater to a variety of additional applications. They can be supplied as free standing units or with a floor stand for vertical positioning or fully integrated within a workbench for horizontal working.
The Miniature Suction Platform is available in either heated or un-heated specifications, the unheated version is ultra thin yet still very strong. The heated suction platform model contains the unique and reliable Willard heating system and is naturally a little wider.
Both models are supplied with two different sized perforated work surfaces which can each be fitted to the small suction chamber mounted on to a mini pantograph (scissor lift). This can be positioned and finely adjusted to make precise contact with a canvas or object requiring treatment. The larger surface measuring approx 300 x 300mm (12 x 12in) has tapered edges to facilitate access for treatments such as strip lining. Whilst the smaller surface measuring approx 150 x 150mm (6 x 6in) allows treatment to smaller items or localised deterioration.
