Hot Platen, Laminating, and Multi-Opening Presses



Advanced Machine Design Company designs and manufactures a line of down or up stroking hot platen press systems for a variety of materials. These hot platen presses are used for diffusion bonding of high strength, high temperature metals, and aluminum. The AMD hot platen presses are also used for composites, super plastics forming, compression molding SMC materials, fiberglass reinforced plastics, and polyester thermosetting plastics. The same series are used as lamination presses with sizes and tonnage varying considerably with application.


The AMD lamination press and hot platen press designs can be configured in single or multiple openings based on customer requirements and material specifications. Plates can be heated by oil, steam, or direct electric.  Key features of our hot platen and lamination presses include: non-contaminating temperature resistant platens, accurate multi-zone temperature control, accurate pressure and speed control through ramping stepping and back-off cycles and forced parallelism control. Multi opening presses are custom configured based on production needs, space available and production requirements.
