Laboratory Press equipped with Cooling system

Laboratory Press equipped with Cooling system

Laboratory press for the compression moulding of thermoplastic materials equipped with cooling circuit.

Instrument characteristics

The complete design of Gibitre press has been specifically developed to get the best possible results: Mechanical structure with 4 columns (60 mm diameter) and sliding plate driven by self-lubricating bushing Hydraulic system with 20 tons closure force (which ensures 5 MPa pressure over 200x200 mm mould surface).
250x250 mm chrome plated steel platens with 40 mm thickness to ensure minimal deflection even at high pressing forces.
Specifically designed flat heating elements to ensure uniform temperature distribution over the platen surface (max 2°C)
According to the needs of the customer, the press may be equipped with Automatic Press Control, Cooling system and Closure Force Control.

Automatic Press Control

Gibitre Press Control: PLC with touch-screen display that permits to set the moulding cycle by setting the displacements of the moving plate of the press, the temperatures of the plates at the different stages of the moulding cycle and the closure forces (with the force control option installed)
Digital pressure regulation system specially designed for applications that require an accurate control of closure force. The Gibitre Press Control device permits to set different closure forces during the moulding cycle.
Mould with extraction rail for the production of plates 200x200 mm and thickness upon request
Moulds for the creation of plates and specimens in compliance with standard

The cooling system

Cooling is required for moulding of thermoplastics because the moulded part must be brought to solidification temperature before opening the mould. 
The cooling is performed by means of integrated cooling platens and requires the connection to a water source or a chiller.
The Automatic Press Controller automatically regulates the cooling system according to the tempe- rature and cooling rate set in the moulding cycle.
When the set final temperature has been reached, the platens may be automatically opened for the extraction of the moulded part.
