Pressing System

The pressing system convinces me with the precision of panels we can produce. Also the whole process can be monitored with measurable values like the pressure.

A must have for timber construction companies: As architects continue to slim down walls and ceilings the pressing system opens up new possibilities.

Nowadays architects and clients tend more and more towards visible wood panels for roofs and ceilings. The pressing system simplifies their production and the glue makes them supporting parts of the element, on top of being nice to look at.

More Clearspan

Glued box beams can have 50% more clearspan length.

Slimmer Elments

The thickness of glued box beams can be reduced by a third.

Improved Vibration Resistance

Thanks to the glue, the clearspan length goes up to 7-8 m, instead of 4-5 m.


Production in One Pressing Cycle

In contrast to screw pressing, the box beam can be produced in a single pressing cycle, which saves 50% of time.

No Additional Costs

As the pressing system is pneumatic, there is no cost for additional material like pressing screws.

Supporting Visible Surface

Thanks to the fact that the panels are glued on, they can be used as visible surfaces.

Monitored Pressure

Guarantee the quality of your products to third parties, thanks to clear pressure monitoring.


Efficient Application

The roller allows an application in a straight line and forward direction.

Application On Beams

On beams the roller is guided laterally. Different roller widths are available and they are easy to exchange.

Optimized Flow Interruption

Thanks to an optimized valve system, the glue flow can be interrupted very precisely.
