XO PRESS

XO PRESS series for producing irregular, like oval or rectangular ( X ) and round ( O ) ceramic products with steel moulds. With this XO-PRESS a very high product standard can be achieved: all products are identical, smooth and exactly the same have a constant wall thickness and are perfectly finished by robot and sponge wheel. The XO-PRESS machine includes: a pressing unit with upper mould rotational drive, a vacuum-head to pick up the pressed pot out of the under-mould, clay cut- and place arm unit and CNC-XO-Control unit. When working in X modus the finishing will be done with a robot and a sponging unit. The much quicker O modus finishing will be similar as on our Flex press; a T.C. cutter and a roller on the take out arm. Basic machine types: XO finishing the closing seam of the non-round products by one or two robots on a sponging wheel unit. The Round articles are finished at the take out arm. X only for irregular products. Available: in High Production execution: take out arm, conveyor and two robots to finish. Or: Normal execution: take out and finishing by one robot, product ready for transport to dyer. Options: Clay Pre-cut and pick and place unit, Product transport systems, Robots, Sponging units, etc. A very good and reliable clay-steel release system and combined Pressing system is applied. (PATEND) While the CNC-XO-Control allows for a quick change over and easy settings in production. The press is of robust build, well finished, and all linear ways are perfectly covered and sealed from clay or the mould oil. The machine has an outstanding well design and well-considered configuration of machine components so a very long life span is achieved. The modular XO-Press is easy to fit in all production lines.
