INNOVAPRESS is a combination of two characteristics which are integrated into the same frame: The warm platen pressing which is demanded by the high-speed PVAc or urea glues and the friction press, which together enable the processing of both softwood and hardwood products.
The press operation is continuous. On the front end of the press, the «warm part», the glue, is activated quickly, which enables an essential shortening of the time taken in pressing. At the rear end of the press there is a cooling area.
The warm treatment is the equivalent of the technique used by the warm platen press but the operating properties of the friction press - such as a minimised need of sanding on panels and its suitability as an inline machine in the continuous panel process line - still exist.
A water circulation unit can be connected to the press from the factory heating system, or it can be heated by a separate heating system.
Gluing is performed by the Innova patented gluing applicator, which allows a maximum gluing speed of 300m per minute. The press can also be equipped with a comb or sprayer gluing applicator.
The press is fully hydraulic and its pressing force can be adjusted accurately. The press settings are very simple to set thanks to the high automation level and user-friendly touchscreen.
Additional equipment is available in the form of trimming and cutting saws, thereby decreasing raw materials wastage and allowing items to be cut into the final sizes required.
