Renowned for their cutting-edge technology and commitment to excellence, LACO has once again continued innovation with their LVO Series standard and custom vacuum ovens. These ovens are not only equipped with state-of-the-art features but also boast remarkable system integration and process automation capabilities, making them the ultimate choice for any demanding application.


One of the standout features of the LVO Series ovens is their fully integrated design. Available in both benchtop and mobile cart configurations, these ovens come complete with a process controller, digital vacuum gauge and complete vacuum pump setup, offering a turnkey solution for all your vacuum oven needs. LACO understands the importance of a seamless and efficient workflow, and by integrating the necessary components within the oven enclosure, they have eliminated the hassle of external connections and potential compatibility issues. Whether you opt for the two-stage rotary vane pumps or the dry, oil-free vacuum pumps, you can be confident in the comprehensive and self-contained nature of the LVO Series ovens.


When it comes to process automation, the LVO Series ovens truly shine. With their automated and fully programmable heat and vacuum controller, you have unparalleled control over your processes. The ability to select vacuum levels and shelf temperatures at pre-determined time intervals allows you to fine-tune your operations with precision and efficiency. Unlike most vacuum ovens on the market that offer only a single temperature setpoint control, the LVO Series ovens empower you with multiple setpoint controls. With the capacity for up to five unique recipes and twenty control steps each, you have the freedom to execute complex processes with ease. The ovens provide real-time monitoring and data logging, with parameters graphed on a vibrant color touchscreen. This data can be stored for later analysis and retrieval, enabling you to make informed decisions based on empirical evidence.

Heating System

The internal heating mechanism of the LVO Series ovens sets them apart from the competition. By utilizing an internal heater with direct contact to the shelf, these ovens leverage conduction heating to its fullest potential. This approach ensures uniform heating throughout the heated shelf, eliminating any concerns about inconsistent temperature distribution on traditional wall heated ovens. With the LVO Series ovens, you can trust that every inch of your parts will receive the precise and reliable heating they need.
