Whip Mix’s ProPress SP Furnace offers a new level of true pressing control. A unique component monitors the flow of the glass and senses the movement of the ceramic into the ring in real time from start to finish. When the mold is filled, the table is lowered as quickly as possible. This faster press not only saves time, but prevents/minimizes the formation of the reaction layer so often seen with other press systems. The ProPress SP furnace is also able to successfully press split or cracked molds, increasing the likelihood of a complete press without finning or splitting the mold. This furnace enables the successful pressing of more units per ring, faster and more consistently than other furnaces.
