The press, which is available in an upstroke and short-stroke design, boasts a low construction height and an energy saving drive. Dieffenbacher adds that the identical deflection of table and ram, which provides an even bend flow of the upper and lower tool, and high-precision parallel-run behavior ensure a consistent component thickness and increase the quality of the component.

According to Dieffenbacher, the ease of access on all four sides enables rapid, flexible die changes using moving bolsters as well as optimum clearance for automation tasks.

The press series is designed for pressing fibre-reinforced thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics, as well as cabon fibre-reinforced plastics.

The Compress Lite is available in variants delivering press forces from 4000-12,500 kN. The new press design complements Dieffenbacher’s existing press range, which includes the Compress Plus and Compress Eco series.
