Dieffenbacher (Eppingen, Germany) introduced a new series of presses, called Compress Lite, for cost-effective production. Available in both upstroke and short-stroke design, in addition to down-stroke, the Lite press has an energy-saving drive, high-precision parallel-run behavior, and ease of access on all four sides of the press, for faster die changes using moving bolsters. Compress Lite is designed for pressing fiber-reinforced thermoplastics as well as thermosets. It is available in press forces from 4,000 to 12,500 kN, and complements Dieffenbacher’s existing Compress Plus and Compress Eco series.
