Presses and press systems
for plastics

Compression presses with hydraulic or electric drives for the universal production of a wide range of plastic components.

WICKERT develops and produces state-of-the-art presses with hydraulic or electric drives for processing plastic materials. The modular system on which our presses are based means that individual adjustments can be made to the specific applications required by the manufacturing industry.

WICKERT plastic presses are suitablet
for the following materials and processes amongst others

  • Polypropylene and polyethylene (PP, PE)
  • High temperature thermoplastics (PPS and PEEK)
  • Production of thermoplastic semi-finished platens in a range of formats up to 6,500 x 3,000 mm
  • Duroplastics (free-flowing or non-free-flowing)
  • BCM, SMC, BCMi

Benefits of our presses at a glance

  • Customisable specific press dimensions from 5 to 80.000 kN and more
  • Maximum press platen size even over 6.5m
  • Hydraulic or electric drives
  • Tool cleaning
  • Leveling device
  • Turn-key solutions including thermo-oil systems
  • Transfer presses
  • Automatic removal
  • Automatic feed
  • Mould technology for semi-finished goods production
  • Quick mould clamping systems
  • Very high precision thanks to extremely stiff machine frame, pre-stressed rigid precision guides combined with the precision quick clamping systems and high resolution absolute position-sensor systems
