The Magnum Venus Reciprocator is designed to automatically produce flat panels or sheets using a gel coat and/or a chopper gun that traverses or reciprocates over a moving mold or table. Spray applications and material rollout can both be completely automated. Most commonly, this machine is used to apply polyester resin and chopped gun roving simultaneously. The Magnum Venus Reciprocator features a quick gun carriage reversal to recover normal speed of the gun head. This quick reverse requires no gun triggering, giving little build-up at the edges of the panel for minimum waste and a high production rate.
