HELD: 80 BAR ISOBARIC PRESSURE FOR CONTINUOUS HPL, AT LIGNA HALL 26 BOOTH A68

In the company history the years 2017/2018 will stand out as the ones with the highest revenue since ever. In this period 3 lines for the production of CHPL have been delivered to their final destinations, 2 of them to big players in Italy, 1 of them to a production site in UK of a globally acting group.

Customers have chosen the Held isobaric system because of the outstanding and proven technology which enables them to work in a 24/7 production continuously with 80 bar stable pressure. Furthermore, the recent presses have been equipped with a high-performance and ultra-flexible seal system, which allows to produce even material widths below the chosen format in all thicknesses typically used for CHPL. Industry 4.0 was a topic as well for these companies. Software measures combined with the necessary hardware allow them – if desired – to have an exact picture on the production output.
This subject will get more and more important and Held has the right means to support the users. Since the presentation of the worldwide first isobaric Double Belt Press during the Ligna in Hannover in 1975 by Held, this technology was improved continuously since then. While in the beginning only 10-15 bar could be achieved, the use of a liquid (pressure medium oil) instead of air allows to work in a safe way with stable pressures up to 80 bar.
The Held Technology Park in Trossingen-Germany with 3 full-sized Double Belt Press lines in 3 different widths is on one side an important mean for the continuous research and development. On the other hand, these presses can be used by all customers for their own research work and even for production.
This possibility is less important for the laminate industry, as the use of a continuous double belt press is a proven technology. For other and new industries, for example the Composite Industry with their fibre-reinforced plastic materials, the Technology Park is an indispensable instrument for material development and sampling to the end-users. These thermoplastic materials need heating and cooling under maintained pressure and all Held presses in the Technology Park offer this possibility. Held Technologie GmbH is a family owned company run by Till Held and Richard Fisel in the third generation.
The next generation already joined the business and is guaranteeing therefore the continuation. Besides the Double Belt Press and the Technology Park, the production of the endless steel belts forms a third and important foothold in the company. This production includes the whole process from the cutting, welding and grinding of the high-tensile stainless steel up to the chrome plating process in-house.
Different surfaces can be provided such as high-gloss steel belts, mat and industrial polished belts.
