Original Press Release

New All Electric E-Series Compression Press from Carver, Inc.

Press release date: December 20, 2005

CARVER, INC. has introduced the first all electric compression press designed for round-the-clock performance in a lab or on the production floor. The new E-Series is clean (no hydraulics to worry about), quiet to operate, and offers greater precision and reliability over hydraulically driven presses. Energy savings is another key benefit, especially when considering longer dwell time applications.

The E-Series is especially suited to clean room and laboratory applications. They are ideal for compression molding rubber/elastomers, gum silicones, various TPR's, thermosets, and plastics. They can also be used in various bonding and laminating applications. The unique all electric power/drive system provides accurate ramping of clamp force from 1,000 lbs to 30 tons.

Standard temperature range is to 650°F (higher temperatures optionally available), and platen sizes range from 12" x 12" to 24" x 24".

The E-series features a microprocessor-based programmable control of all press functions. Heated platens are fully insulated, cartridge heaters are included. The temperature is controlled thru the PLC and has programmable heating and cooling capability. An integral load cell is included for force feedback to the PLC providing programmable pressure ramping capability. The PLC also has a segmented program structure with recipe storage.
