Laboratory presses from Langzauner:
New standards in the development of composite materials

Laboratory presses from Langzauner represent our decades-long cooperation with fiber composite material manufacturers in industry, research institutes and universities. Our presses for the development of composite materials are compact, powerful and freely configurable according to individual customer requirements.

Laboratory presses for your development requirements

Whether in industry, or at a research institute or university, laboratory presses from Langzauner have proven their worth wherever research is conducted on the innovative use of composite materials. Our many years of experience enable us to tailor the press precisely to our customers’ development requirements. Laboratory presses from Langzauner are offered in three sizes. Each model can be adjusted to the requirements of the respective laboratory setting with a wide range of freely configurable functions.

perfectLAB series from Langzauner

With perfectLAB, Langzauner offers a sophisticated series of laboratory presses. The hydraulic, electrically temperature-controlled press in an upstroke design combines all the features required for research assignments and for prototyping in the composite sector.

  • Maximum precision
  • Minimum space requirement

Application range of perfectLAB laboratory presses

In developing the perfectLAB series, Langzauner’s aim was to create a laboratory press for the widest range of applications in the R&D sector. The compact presses can be used for trials and even the serial production of small components.

To achieve a tailor-made solution, customers are always individually advised at Langzauner. Requirements and key indicators for the processes to be mapped are collected and the laboratory press designed to meet these.

A team of over 40 engineering experts develops tailor-made laboratory processes for our customers in the composite sector. The perfectLAB series can be used as a basis for even higher requirements in the R&D sector and upgraded individually.

Hydraulics for maximum precision and energy efficiency

The hydraulics in the laboratory presses from Langzauner are designed as a variable speed drive that delivers significant advantages when working with the laboratory presses:

  • Maximum precision
  • Short runtimes for maximum energy efficiency
  • Longer oil maintenance intervals
  • Reliable pressure control and positioning
  • No oil cooling system required
  • Longer oil maintenance intervals
  • No need for adjustment or calibration of proportional valves

Langzauner has extensive know-how in the area of hydraulics, which is built on by our in-house R&D department. Innovative laboratory presses from Langzauner are known for their maximum availability, precision and energy efficiency.
