Maximum pressure and parallelism for precisely glued panel production.

The Italpresse XL series hot press is a hydraulic hot press for pressing laminates or veneer onto a substrate.  The high efficiency diathermic oil recirculates though the upper and lower platens to reduce pressing time.  The industrial design of the press with its massive steel beam frame along with the massive pressing cylinders exert force to ensure the proper bonding of each panel and ensures they are perfectly flat.

Why Italpresse XL Series Hot Press?

Edgebanders tend to be one of the more complex machines to operate in a woodworking shop, and their performance has a vital impact on the quality of your finished product. Proper machine setup, maintenance, and cleaning play a major role in achieving the best edgebanding results. Below are some basic tips that can greatly reduce the downtime you experience on your edgebander and keep it producing quality components.

Cuisi-n-art, of Gatineau, Quebec, with an eye to the future, undertook a large construction project to double the size of their manufacturing facility and increase their production capacity. The centrepiece of their manufacturing plant expansion was implementing two Anderson Stratos Pro Full-Line CNC Routers and Schelling material storage system.
