Why professionals choose our presses

Advanced framework

Our presses use an advanced 2-column press frame to make sure that all samples –
regardless of temperature and pressure – have exactly the same thickness.

Safety first

Our presses are designed with the safety of the operator in mind and use safety facilities
such as a safety shield, an emergency stop system and fixed upper platen.

Accurate temperature

Thanks to the use of high quality and carefully tuned heating elements, our laboratory presses offer extremely accurate temperature distribution.

User friendly

It’s important to us that our presses are easy to operate. This applies to both our LabManual and LabTop
presses as well as to our LabEcon and LabPro models which are equipped with a user-
friendly touchscreen operating system.

Precise force distribution

The rigid design of our presses allows precise force distribution over the full platen surface
as well as highly controlled pressure build-up.

Compact design

Thanks to their compact design and limited weight, these presses can easily be
accommodated in labs of all sizes.
