The hot press is one of the crucial machines in the plywood industry. A hot press is a machine made especially for heating and pressing veneers. Among its many benefits is its use in manufacturing high-quality laminate panels.
In this blog post, we will explore the functions of a hot press and discuss some advantages.
Short Overview of Hot Press Machine
Heating and baking the prepared veneers is the principal function of the hot press.
● Wooden doors
● Core board
● Chipboard with various types of decorative paper HPL or veneer
In addition to that, the hot press machine can dry and level the veneer. Woodworkers use the hot press machine for a wide variety of purposes, such as:
● Veneer drying
● Wood leveling
● Color decorating
Press machines for woodworking are used in factories that manufacture windows and doors. You can hot-glue the following things using a hot press:
● Constructional Partitions
● Laminated wood
● Components used in the construction of fire doors' surface
● Furniture crockery
The core component of our hot press machine is the motor. The industries which use hot press machines are:
● Building material shops
● Machinery repair shops
● Manufacturing plants
● Construction works
Features of Hot Press Machine
PLC Control System
Our hot press machine features a PLC control panel. The PLC control panel PLC ensures the smooth operation of the machine. The operator can easily control and manage the hot press machine.
The hot press machine equips a hot platen. It is made from high-quality carbon steel. It has excellent accuracy, strength, and durability.
The hot press machine has a hydraulic system. A hydraulic system powers machinery. It also moves mechanical components by using a fluid under pressure. A right-angled one-way valve ensures smooth operation. The operator can adjust the pressure. The hydraulic system has an oil pump and an electric motor.
The hydraulic system is easy to use and gets accurate results. Hydraulic systems maintain the same torque or force output regardless of changes in operating speed.
Electric Oil Heater
Our hot press machine features an electric oil heater. Electric oil heaters are safe for the environment. They do not use any fuel such as coal, fossil fuels, etc. The burning of fuel cause pollution. But the electric oil heater is environment-friendly.
The oil heater is adjustable. It provides a uniform temperature.
The operators can manually operate the hot press machine. It also has an automatic control feature.
The hot press machine consists of an oil envelope. The oil envelope prevents oil from leaking.
The hot press machine employs a chain drive. The chain drive allows the hot press machine to move rapidly and reliably.
The hot press machine has a hydraulic pump. The hydraulic pump consumes less energy. It has a high speed and reduces noise.
Advantages of Hot Press Machine
Easy to Operate
This hot press machine features a PLC control panel. The automatic control system on the hot press machine makes it very user-friendly.
The adaptability of the features makes them suitable for a wide variety of users and situations. It makes the machine easier to handle and run for the operator.
Saves Labor Costs
The PLC control system automates and streamlines the machine's operation. The automation of the hot press machine reduces labor costs while making the equipment more user-friendly.
Reduces the Risk of Personal Injury
The PLC panel significantly cuts down on the requirement for human involvement. Therefore, there is no risk of injury to the people using the machine.
They need only monitor the software programs' operation.
The hot press machine allows for cutting with more precision and without defects. Codes and software control the entire process, contributing to high precision.
The PLC control system allows the operator to operate the hot press machine efficiently. Adding PLC to your machinery will make it run smoother and more precisely than ever before.
No Oil Leakage
There will be no oil spills thanks to the oil envelope.
The oil heater of our hot press is electric. Heating oil using electricity is harmless to the environment. The oil heater uses nothing like coal, fossil fuels, etc., as energy sources. It maintains a steady temperature throughout.
Stable Machine Movement
The chain drive ensures the smooth and speedy operation of the hot press machine.
No Special Training Required
When it comes to practical use, the PLC programming language is simple to learn. You can instantly change the program at any time. There is no need to give the operators any special training.
The hydraulic pump uses significantly less energy. It is fast, and it cuts down on noise.
Classification of Plywood Pressing Machines
Cold Press Machine
Woodworkers use plywood cold press machines to press the adhesive veneer into the desired shape.
The plywood undergoes a final pressing in a hot press machine after being moulded in a cold press for the bonding veneer.
It reduces the hot press cycle time, which improves the quality of the plywood before the glue is applied.
Cold press machines use heated platen and powerful cylinders. These high-output cylinders allow cold press machines to function flawlessly and quickly.
This equipment uses the following as its sources of heat:
● Hot steam
● Thermal oil
Laminating veneers are becoming more and more common, so it's crucial to have the proper tools available to deliver a successful project. A hot press machine is the best option if you want to effortlessly and swiftly laminate veneers. Hot press machines are multipurpose and efficient in their ability to generate high-quality laminates in a short amount of time.
Our hot press machine is perfect for this purpose as it can produce high-quality laminates quickly and easily. So, if you're looking for a machine that can help you save time and money on your veneer project, check out our hot press machine!
