Italpresse "Mark/C" Through-Feed Hot Press for Lean Manufacturing
Feed Through Presses
The Italpresse Mark/C through-feed hot press features a unique combination of a load scanning system and an axis control system for the cylinder stroke that allows complete random loading of the press from load to load without any input from the operator. One load could be a large conference table top and the next a single drawer front. The machine adapts instantly to the components entering the press. The operator sets the thickness and desired laminating pressure. The scanning system reads the surface area and position of the parts in the press. A complex algorithm determines how much hydraulic pressure to feed to each cylinder. Each cylinder will receive a different pressure, which could be zero if no panels are positioned near that particular cylinder. The axis control system assures perfect parallelism of the platens even under full pressure during the laminating cycle. This allows complete random loading of the press. There is no need to "balance the load" or fill the press.
