Are you driving your car for 10 years without changing the oil? In order to keep your vehicle in proper condition and to extend the engine life, good lubrication is needed regularly.
So why do you never exchange the oil of your hydraulic lab press? We advise you to exchange the hydraulic oil every year. In this blog we explain how the lifetime of your lab press can easily be extended by changing its hydraulic oil.
As materials become more sophisticated, so should your laboratory press:
– Are your sample plaques of uniform thickness across the plaque?
– Do you know the effects of not having the same heating and cooling rates across your plaque?
– Are your samples really ASTM D4703 compliant?
If you even have the slightest doubt, it’s time for a new press!
In this blog, we explain for what purposes you need a laboratory platen press. We also point why a dedicated laboratory press is the best solution to prepare your samples, even if you have a production press or an injection moulding machine at your disposal.
