Bearings Bush Type Bearing/ Anti Friction Roller Bearings
  • The HB Type presses have been designed specially for manufacturing and curing the bladders used in the AUBO, BOM and AUTOFORM presses.
  • The control of the Hydraulic system included in the equipment is designed such that lower mould half carrying the uncured rubber approaches the upper mould half with high velocity during the first closing stage. Thereby, the total closing period is reduced to a minimum.
  • In the beginning of the pressing operation the closing speed is stackened automatically in order to obtain slow and uniform compression of the uncured material. After lapse of the curing time, the press opens automatically and the bladders for AUBO and BOM presses are removed from the lower core plate.

Operation of Bladder Curing Press


  • The bladder for AUTOFORM presses is detached by means of a pneumatic device which can be included in the delivery package on specific order.
  • The two external mould portions and the core are cured by a direct steam connection.
  • The press along with the hydraulic power unit are delivered in a “ready for connection” condition, excluding curing platens. The timer/PLC for automatic press opening after completion of the curing period as well as the steam/ condensate piping are normal features of supply.

Bladder Moulds:

The moulds are manufactured according to customers drawing using high grade steel.

General Description of Tube Curing Press


Design and Operation Features

  • Tube curing presses require a drive enabling the mould halves to close within the shortest possible time in order to avoid premature curing of non-vulcanized and relatively thin material in the hot mould and to launch the curing process under internal pressure as quickly as possible. It takes 5.5 seconds to close the mould halves.
  • Another important feature is revealed by opening and closing movement of the press. In opening the lower part of the press goes down by simultaneously tilting forward while the upper part remains fixed, thus providing a desk like loading and unloading position which is particularly advantageous in view of the flabby tubes having a relatively large diameter.
  • The presses are delivered with or without curing platen. However, in the case of larger tubes, mould with steam jacket is generally used to obtain uniform curing. As the curing platen serves as mould fixation also, the upper curing platen is replaced by special mould retaining plate in mould with a steam jacket, while the lower mould half is fixed to the table. A central adjustment installation on the upper part of the press enables quick and uniform adjustment to the various mould heights.
