CitoPress mounting press
The fastest way to mounting and increased productive capacity
CitoPress mounting press facts
- Low mass mounting units for fast heating
- Automatic detection of cylinder dimension
- Automatic dosing system for faster filling of the cylinders and less spilling of resins
- Multifunction knob and large display for intuitive operation
CitoPress is a powerful hot mounting press, giving high speed and maximum user-friendliness for faster turnaround and increased productive capacity. The optional automatic dosing system reduces mounting time by enabling dosing of a preset amount of mounting resin. The user interface includes an informative on-screen Hot Mounting Application Guide for a minimum of errors.
CitoPress-30 is an advanced, electro-hydraulic, programmable, dual cylinder mounting press. The CitoPress-30 offers total process control, database facilities, and synchronous or independent operation of both cylinders.
CitoPress-15 is an advanced, electro-hydraulic, programmable, single cylinder mounting press. The CitoPress-15 offers total process control and database facilities.
CitoPress-5 is an automatic mounting press.
Easy to use
The intuitive multifunction knob allows the user to control method parameters (temperature, pressure, heating time, cooling time) individually to ensure full mounting flexibility. The built-in Hot Mounting Application Guide takes user friendliness to a new level with built-in mounting parameters for all Struers resins. Select the Struers resin, and CitoPress automatically checks the cylinder diameter, adapts the appropriate method, and displays it ready for use.
Shorter mounting time
Compact, low-mass mounting units significantly reduce heating time. This means that mounting times can be reduced to nearly one third of the time of competing presses. The optional CitoDoser automatic dosing system enables faster filling of the cylinders and less resin wastage, saving more time by automatically storing and recalling the last used method when the relevant Doser is placed on the press.
Save money and resources
In addition to time savings, less than half the power is required to heat the mounting unit in comparison with other presses. Three pre-set cooling levels – High, Medium, and Low, match the resin to achieve significant water savings. Medium mode can be used in most cases.
