NASHUA, NH—Greenerd Press & Machine Co. has developed a 2,500-ton compression molding press with 10-foot-square heated platens that can maintain a temperature of 500 F with a tolerance of ±5 degrees. 

The press is part of a seven-press order. The machine also features a mold transfer system that improves the ergonomic and safety dynamics for operators, and reduces the press idle time between cycles.

Greenerd offers hydraulic presses for a range of industries, including composites manufacturing. “To meet the demands of today’s challenging applications, we are providing manufacturers with press solutions that are flexible, productive and reliable as well as often being quite large and complex,” says Greenerd CEO Jerry Letendre. “For even greater manufacturing efficiency, we are able to provide our hydraulic press customers with turnkey, state-of-the-art robotic and other product handling solutions.”

Greenerd’s line of hydraulic presses are available in a variety of styles ranging from gap frame and straight-side to die-spotting and forging presses, with unlimited size and tonnage capabilities.
