Hard facts speak for us

Press plates are production tools with high demands. Long durability has a direct positive impact on your unit costs. High hardness, tight tolerances, and precision in detail mean predictable quality for you that remains constant over time.

The experience and know-how of the C.A.PICARD® team is at your disposal for the design of your press plates; from the first sketches to the final detailed solution. Challenge us: we are eager to seek solutions, even for the impossible.

C.A.PICARD® press plates

  • Trouble-free production is guaranteed due to no distortion caused by variations in temperature
  • refurbishing is available quickly and at favourable costs
  • high heat conductivity (less input of energy and time)
  • favourable TEC (thermal expansion coefficient)
  • high corrosion resistance
  • high hardness (50 HRC = longer life time)
  • usable for all types of cleaning / brushing machines
