A hot hydraulic press or a heat press machine is a device that offers easy press and operation. Heat transfer changes the internal energy of both systems involved according to the First Law of Thermodynamics. The heating-up speed is selectable according to different products. The titanium indenter ensures an even temperature, fast heat-up, and long service life. The pressure head is designed to be adjustable to ensure even pressure on the component. The temperature is controlled for clear precision. Digital pressure gauge with preset pressure range.

The wide application of hot press machines is reflected in the application of various man-made boards. Such as plywood, joinery board,  particle board, surface pressing and pasting of various decorative materials, decorative cloth, and so on. It can also be used for veneer drying and leveling, and the leveling and shaping of colorful decorative wood pieces, which is very effective. In the processing and manufacturing of wood, the hot press machine is the main machinery of woodworking machinery. Its position cannot be ignored. The high-quality hot press is a basic piece of equipment in manufacturing production. It is very suitable for small businesses, it can produce mouse pads, man-made boards, yoga mats, insulation foam, and so on.

The heat hydraulic press adopts advanced electronic control, which can complete the processing process through the change. It is powered by oil pressure and compressed air, so there should be enough air pressure and air volume. The frame is made up of the whole processing with steel plate, and the whole structure is reasonable, and the two working tables can be used in the cycle.

15. It is very fast in use, making the work much more efficient. If the thickness of the work does not exceed twenty millimeters, then the time required for heat conduction with this heat press is very short. The thickness of the workpiece has a great influence on ordinary conduction heating. While using the hot press machine, the thickness of the workpiece has very little influence on the heating.

16. When using the machine to heat the work, it can make the heated workpiece heated better. The hot press can heat evenly both the inside and outside of the product, thus making the quality of the workpiece very good. The workpiece itself does not generate too much heat, it can make the adhesive curing strength to be improved.

17. Nowadays, there is a very high demand for environmental protection. The heat pressing machine is eco-friendly and it ensures both hygiene and safety under the premise of obtaining a good heating effect.

The working principle of the heat press is actually to process the equipment by adding positive pressure based on negative pressure with special glue. The hot press also has the characteristics of high pressure, low temperature, and short film pressure time.  When processing workpieces with negative pressure equipment, it solves the problem of deformation and makes the deformation of workpieces reduced. It ensures the quality and performance of products.

The press machines on the market with hot preparation can automatically complete the processing of table feeding, table raising, heating, vacuuming, forming, demolding, and table lowering. It is mainly driven by oil pressure and compressed air, so there should be enough air pressure and air volume. The frame is composed of steel plates, and the structure is reasonable. The two working tables can be recycled or used separately.

Pulse heating principle, due to the special design of the surface of the welding head, the resistance of the welding surface of our hot press machine is very small, and the current will pass through the section with the smallest resistance. By changing the voltage and adjusting the current level, the weld head is heated through. A 2000W transformer is used in our hot press machine to generate a high current at a low voltage, which heats the weld head. The greater the pulse ratio, the greater the current output and the faster the weld head heats up.

It can be divided into a thermostatic heat press, pulse heat press, duplex heat press, dual head pulse heat press, benchtop heat press, swing away heat press, etc. According to the different mediums of hot press machines, it can be classified as tin solder, ACF (anisotropic conductive tape), ACP (anisotropic conductive glue), and TBF (hot melt adhesive film). It is suitable for the connection of FPC (flexible circuit board), HSC (zebra paper), and TAB with LCD and PCB. As the Pitch of PCB or FPC in consumer electronics tends to be smaller, the traditional soldering process has been difficult to meet the requirements of very fine thermal pressure. the ACF process has been applied by cell phone designers.

Also, a positive pressure of the machine is added based on negative pressure with special glue, for the processing of PVC series, the line shape in place and pasting force is incomparable to the negative pressure equipment, due to its high pressure, low temperature, and short film pressure time, it solves the problem of deformation when processing workpieces (especially large area workpieces) by negative pressure equipment, so that the deformation of workpieces is reduced.

● Common Failure Analysis

During the use of the hot press machine, some faults are usually encountered, which directly affects normal production. This article will give you an analysis of common faults.

1. Poor lubrication or excessive machining of hydraulic cylinder bore

Because the piston and the cylinder, the guide rail and the piston rod have relative movement, if the lubrication is poor or the hydraulic cylinder aperture processing is excessively poor, the wear will be intensified, and the linearity of the cylinder center line will be reduced. Thus, when the piston is operated in a hydraulic cylinder, the frictional resistance will be large and small, causing slippage or creeping. The solution is to first grind the hydraulic cylinder, then prepare the piston according to the requirements, repair the piston rod, and configure the guide sleeve.

2. Hydraulic cylinder internal stagnation

The internal parts of the hydraulic cylinder are improperly assembled, the parts are deformed, the wear or the geometrical tolerances are over-limit, and the action resistance is too large, so that the piston speed of the hydraulic cylinder changes with the stroke position, and slips or crawls. Most of the reasons are due to poor assembly quality of the parts, scratches on the surface or iron filings from sintering, which increase the resistance and decrease the speed. The solution is to re-repair or adjust, replace damaged parts and remove iron filings.

The hydraulic pump or hydraulic cylinder enters the air. The elimination measures are to check the hydraulic pump, set up a special exhaust device, and quickly operate the full-stroke and exhaust several times.

3. Overflow valve failure

First check if the adjustment pressure is too low, fully open the relief valve, start the hydraulic pump, and work the reversing valve A in the left position. Gradually tighten the pressure regulating handwheel of the relief valve to observe the change of the pressure gauge.


No matter how to tighten the pressure hand wheel, the maximum pressure indicated by the pressure gauge is only 6MPa, and the working pressure of the pump cannot reach 21MPa, indicating that the pressure is not going up. The relief valve pressure is not high, it may be a relief valve failure, or other reasons.
