Short Cycle Press Line
The Short Cycle Press Line is one kind of hot hydraulic press machine with automatic loading and unloading system. It is used for direct hot laminating paper on wood-based boards such as MDF, HDF, Particleboard, Chipboard, and Plywood.
The texture on the surface of the plate is determined by the texture on the surface of the stainless steel template. The melamine-faced board is widely used for making furniture and flooring for homes and offices.

Highlights Qiangtong Short Cycle Press Line
Video of automatic short cycle press Model ZD-A
The automatic short cycle press line has various models. We can also provide the customized line according to the customer’s special requirements. The line layout could be I-type straight line or L type or U type. Here we show the I-type most basic model ZD-A which based on Model D2 added the auto raw board carrier (vacuum cups type) and auto trimmer and auto stacker (also vacuum cups type)
Video of automatic short cycle press Model ZD-B
The automatic short cycle press line model ZD-B is based on ZD-A added more equipment at the loading side whose purpose is cleaning the raw board. The clean unit is consist of ground roller conveyors, a roller driven lifter, a pusher to separate the board one by one, and the double rollers brusher to clean both sides of the raw board. If the line has no clean unit, the workers usually will clean the board with compressed air or a feather sweeper.
Video of automatic short cycle press Model ZD-C
The automatic short cycle press line model ZD-C is based on ZD-C added the stand chain cooler. The chain cooler is for cooling down the laminated boards naturally by air. If the environment air is hot, you may need to install extra fans nearby the press line to cool down the surrounding air. For high-quality purposes, to make sure the boards are stocked without high temperature, you may need to chain the cooler to cool down the laminated boards before stacking. The remaining heat between boards will cause the board to bend. It will affect the furniture quality in the end.

The semi-automatic Model D2 compares to Model D1 has one automatic vacuum pad unloader to carry laminated board out from the press machine. It can help to protect the bottom side stainless steel template to avoid scratching because model D1 output is by two workers pushing out. The pushing may cause a scratch on the surface of the stainless steel plate.
Other Equipments Related To Short Cycle Press Line Lamination Production
The laminated board surface texture is from the stainless steel template which is installed inside short cycle press line hot platen. Every stainless steel plate can work only for one design. So usually people will order more designs when purchasing short cycle press line.
Compare to the simple three-way temperature valves, this second recycling system has the advantage of keeping hot oil always flowing. So it can keep the hot platen inside channels clean and it will make sure the heating of the hot platen will be always uniform. That matters to the surface quality of lamiantes.
The heater or boiler is required to work together with the short cycle press line. Because it will supply the hot oil to the press machine. If your factory already has a boiler, then just need to connect one pipe to press machine. If not have, then need to buy one boiler to work together with the short cycle press line.
The short cycle press delivery requires a special container to load the main press machine frame due to the over height. Usually, it is an open-top container, but when the frame is too heavy, then will require the flat rack container.

The production time depends on configuration models. If the semi-automatic short cycle press machine, it needs 60~80 days. While if the fully-automatic short cycle press line, it needs 90~100 days. Besides, you need to consider the shipping line usually is one month. The installation time usually is 2 weeks for semi-auto models and one month for fully automatic models. Therefore, you need to make the purchase plan by at least 4 months ahead of time.
Well, it depends on what models you want to establish. If only semi-auto models with middle pressure, the investment will be from 100,000$ to 150,000$. If fully automatic line models the total investment will be from 170,000$ to 330,000$. The calculation has included all the needed commodities.
The min. space required is 500 square meters including raw boards storage and finished boards warehouse. It’s better to have 1000 square meters. You need to prepare at least 6 workers for starting the lamination production.
