Genesis Series Hydraulic Presses from Compression Molding of Rubber, Plastics, Composites and Laminating: In 15 to 150 Ton Capacities

Genesis Series presses are state-of-the-art hydraulic presses for compression molding of rubber, plastics and composites; also for laminating. The Genesis Series reflects more than a half century of WABASH leadership in hydraulic press design and construction. It is rugged enough for a round-the-clock performance on the production floor, but works equally well as a precision laboratory press.

Genesis hydraulic lab presses are available in 15 through 150 ton capacities. The hydraulic system produces faster closing and opening speeds, making it ideal for use with many of today’s advanced molding compounds. Optional heated platens are available for 500°F, 800°F and 1200°F operating temperatures, which are required for many other applications including composite, ceramic and molding.

Genesis Presses can be Customized for Compression Molding Applications:

While standard WABASH Genesis Presses handle a broad range of applications and can be upgraded or performance-enhanced with available options, your unique requirements may call for a “customized” press. Consult your WABASH representative for more information about “customization ” for your particular needs.
