Description

The CERAMAN manual press is one of the most widely used hand operated mechanical presses for the production of clay bricks and tiles. It is an improved version of a well-known Belgian machine developed more than 80 years ago. One of the main improvements was the automatic unlocking of the cover and automatic ejection of the compressed bricks.

The filling of the mould, pressing the two levers for compaction and removal of blocks, all take place at waist level, which is ergonomically extremely efficient and convenient. The main advantage is, however, that a large variety of moulds can be used on the same machine, to produce plain and perforated clay bricks, paving tiles and even roofing tiles to be fired in a kiln. The moulds can be changed within a few minutes.

The robust all-steel press, which is fitted with castors for mobility from site to site is available as Type S, producing bricks up to 7 cm high Type H for 9 cm blocks and Type X for 10 cm blocks.

The CERAMATIC automatic press is an all-mechanical machine with a 3-station rotating table, comprising a filling station, a moulding station and a de-moulding station. The entire cycle of pressing, ejecting and turning the table is motorized, that is, by means of an electric motor, diesel or petrol engine. The bricks are pressed at high compaction pressures through a mechanical lever system. The production rate can be determined in advance through the choice of a larger or smaller fly-wheel. Considering its production, the CERAMATIC has a very low energy consumption of 1 litre of diesel per hour or 4 kW per hour in its electrical version.

Fitted on a robust base frame with four wheels, the CERAMATIC can easily be moved from site to site. Moulds for special brick sizes are available on request.
