Modification of the press to using pressure distribution plates
using pressure distribution plates the pressure is more evenly distributed
within the press gap (isobaric distribution).
Pressure distribution plates serve to homogenise the pressure exerted by the cylinders thus evening out the hot platen bending in longitudinal direction. Especially in thin-board production this will profit significantly from this effect. As the glue bonding potential is able to fully develop, the glue consumption can be reduced.
- Lowering of the glue consumption
- Alternatively: Improved physical
- Alternatively: less wood without
affecting the properties
- Thin-board production enabled
- Reduced production costs
