HIGH PRESSURE PRESS SYSTEMS FOR BALLISTIC ARMOR
Whether manufacturing vest plates, panels or vehicular armor OEM Press Systems can provide the press for your application. Our innovative multi-functional press designs allow you to successfully run multiple format in a single press with quick tool change over.
OEM Press Systems provides a wide range of high pressure lamination press systems capable of applying pressure settings of up to 3,000 psi across the product area. These presses are suitable for pressing a wide range of composite materials including ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) materials such as Spectra Shield and Dyneema, aramid materials such as Kevlar, fiberglass reinforced materials and ceramic composite materials. High pressure press systems capable of pressing material sizes up to 4’x8’ and 5’x10’ utilize thermal fluid heating and cooling in the press platens so that the entire product area experiences uniform temperature as well as pressure application resulting in uniform lamination results across the entire area. Our robust press design ensures minimal deflection, even pressure distribution and higher ballistic strength ratings in your product.
