Coratec sets new standards for sandwich panels
Thanks to a newly procured continuous press, panels over 2,200 millimeters can also be manufactured in the future. Managing Director Philipp Zurflüh explains in an interview the specific advantages for panel production for construction, transport and industry.
“Vehicle manufacturing and building construction often requires panels with widths, depths or heights over 2,200 millimeters, which we have not been able to produce until now. This is now changing with our new continuous press: thanks to a press area of 3,000 to 10,000 millimeters, we will be able to produce panels in oversizes in the future”, explains Philipp Zurflüh.
The heated continuous press can be deployed in a particularly flexible way, for example for the series production of sandwich panels in various formats, surfaces and thicknesses. “In addition, the manufacture of the sandwich panels is more efficient, making us of interest for customers who require larger quantities”, explains Coratec AG’s Managing Director. “This new continuous press is the ideal production tool for our company. We can now manufacture large panels in big quantities and still have the necessary flexibility to produce individual and customer-specific solutions”, Zurflüh continues.
The sandwich panels in oversizes are available from November 2020.
