Application of Short Cycle Press
Qiangtong melamine short cycle press line is used for the hot laminating impregnated paper on MDF, HDF, Particleboard, Chipboard, and Plywood. Through high temperature and high pressure, the glue on the surface of the impregnated paper is melted and cured on the surface of the pressed boards through the stainless steel template. The texture on the surface of the plate is determined by the texture on the surface of the stainless steel template.

Highlights Qiangtong Short Cycle Press
Video of semi-auto short cycle press Model D1
The semi-automatic short cycle press machine is the most economical choice for the beginner to start the melamine lamination plant. It helps the investor to save costs and brings out the same output daily. Actually the automatic or semi-automatic doesn’t affect the machine output capacity and the quality of laminated boards. It only matters about the labor work production easier management.
Video of semi-auto short cycle press Model D2
The semi-automatic short cycle press model D2 compared to D1 has the automatic vacuum pad unloader. This automatic unloader can take the laminated board from the hot press machine automatically. In D1 model video, you can see that when to unload the board, the workers need to push from the loading side, and another two workers drag the board out from the unloading side by hand. But the auto unloader doesn’t need push and drag, it can protect workers’ safety and protect the bottom stainless steel plate to avoid scratching.

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.

Other Equipments Related To Short Cycle Press Lamination Production
The cushion pads are required for working short cycle press machines, they are installed between the hot oil platen and stainless steel template. It is made of silicone gel and copper wires. The quality of the cushion pad is important that will affect the heating uniform. The user needs to be careful when working the short cycle press to make sure it avoids hot oil leaking on them. It will easily melt with hot oil.
The stainless steel template is required for pressing out the different textures on the laminated board surface. Different designs require different stainless steel templates.

Besides, to get longer life of stainless steel plate, you can request the supplier to longer the chrome time to have a thicker chrome surface with extra cost.
The second recycling temperature control system is for controlling the thermal hot oil inside short cycle press machine hot platens. It works by recycling principle to make sure hot oil is always flowing inside hot platens. To guarantee the heating is uniform all the time. So it is important for lamination quality. You could order from us together with the short cycle press machine or you could buy from the local market.
The short cycle press machine working requires the thermal hot oil supply. So the thermal oil heater or boiler is necessary for the whole production plant.
