Why Choose Qiangtong?

When you purchase our Short Cycle Hot Press Machine, you pay for the top of the line quality. There are numerous ways through which our machine is better. Here are some of them:

New Modernistic Design

Our Short Cycle Hot Press Machine has a new design that improves many functions and working performance compare to  typical design machine. Rather than being welded, it is instead assembled for easier transportation. This also makes it easier for you to move the Short Cycle Hot Press Machine from one place to another. More importantly, it ensures better printing accuracy.

Here are some additional quality enhancing features that you get with our new design:

  • A top oil tank of a ‘distributed design’. This allows you to inject oil much faster and shorten the working time per cycle. There is no soften connector (which can break easily) so our Short Cycle Hot Press Machineis much easier to maintain as well!
  • The new oil cylinders utilize seals material imported from Europe. On top of that, they are installed to prevent drag pressure to the Short Cycle Hot Press Machinebody frame. This means that you get a longer-lasting machine.
  • The new design has better insulation between the cylinders and the hot platens. The air block insulators make sure that the heat transfer from the platen is minimal and almost negligible. Previously, the asbestos sheet was touching the platen so the insulation wasn’t as effective.

Proprietary Hydraulic System

This is perhaps the main reason you should purchase your Short Cycle Hot Press Machine. Our improved hydraulic system ensures that the time to pressurize the system after a press is shorter, the speed is faster, and the quality of the output is better.

This is done through a revamped valve block, a larger diameter for the internal components (e.g. pipelines), and a high-pressure accumulator. The hydraulics of our Short Cycle Hot Press Machine are designed with two things in mind:

  • To help you produce laminated papers which are of unmatchable quality.
  • To make the production process as easy for you as possible.

Asynchronous Servo Motor Powering System

Servos have revolutionized machinery in a number of industries, and we use them to help you cut costs. An asynchronous servo motor ensures that you save money. Using our Short Cycle Hot Press Machine, you can save up to 40% of the money that you would spend on power.

On top of that, the servo ensures that your motor and pump do not move when pressurized. As such, our Short Cycle Hot Press Machine’s hydraulic system lasts around 50% longer than a standard machine.

The servo motor is used in the hydraulic station. We use a copper gasket to prevent air and oil leakage and protect the machine. A powerful magnet is used to absorb the iron flow and make sure the piston pump stays intact. This will also save you energy and power when using our Short Cycle Hot Press Machine.

Secondary Circulation System

Our secondary circulation system uses a thermal oil pump along with a pneumatic valve to control the temperature accurately to the degree. This is done through an imported temperature controller and an electric three-way valve.

What this means is that the temperature between the upper and the lower hot pressing plates is much more consistent than in other Short Cycle Hot Press Machines. This leads to the quality of the Short Cycle Hot Press Machine’s output being vastly better than other machines.

Electrical Control Cabinet

The electrical cabinet houses the power control components and is used to toggle the motor, switches, and leakage protection. It also has alarms and monitoring indicators in order for you immediately determine if the machine is in need of alteration or an emergency stop. You also get a PLC programmable logic controller.

You not only get complete control over the Short Cycle Hot Press Machine, but you also get top of the line protective seals which make the cabinet dustproof and ensure its longevity.


With automatic dust removal, our Short Cycle Hot Press Machine is much safer than many of our competitors. Apart from that, the outward board goes through a suction cup which ensures that the surface plate, as well as your workers, are not harmed in the processes.

The same process also ensures that the finished board does not have any scratches. With automatic belt conveyor loader and a suction cup transplanter for taking out board from Short Cycle Hot Press Machine, it is very useful for protecting worker’s safety because hot press machine has high to 200 degree temperature and high pressure as well.

In addition, we use modular seals to ensure the system lasts as long as possible, even in a high-pressure environment. Wuxi Puhua, the first fuel tank veneer, is used to amplify the life of the Short Cycle Hot Press Machine!
