For veneering embossed shaped surfaces, Steton produces special presses, amde as a rule with a structure of pantographed thick steel plates, heated with diathermic oil, with one or more membranes in rubberized material containing a solution of ethylene glycol.
Thank to their flexibility, the membranes follow the panel shape and allow to exert pressure also on bas-relief parts.
At each pressing cycle, it is possible to work either one large-size panel or various small-size panels. An example of this use is given by the production of “ashlar” doors or panels. These machine need very high pressures, with rapid plate openings and closings and systems for controlling the liquid inside the membranes. Their functions are therefore rather complex and are controlled by a programmable electronic unit. A particular care has been devoted to safety in compliance with European rules.
