QFL presses are compact units with circular trays, designed for faster forming of smaller parts.
Cycles average about one minute, with maximum pressure of 800 bar (11,600 psi). These presses are commonly used for off-loading and back-up for larger rectangular tray presses and for rapid forming of smaller parts.
“We can control the pressure more accurately on small parts in this press,” says Mr. Irwin, “and eliminate even more touch labor. The press is easy to operate, is ergonomically friendly, requires little time to train operators, and needs little maintenance.”

“The quality of the parts meets the same standards set by the original press (rectangular Quintus fluid cell press), but setup time is reduced remarkably, about 2.5 minutes less per part. Only one worker is required on the new press, compared with two on the larger model, and overall labor time per part has been cut by 60 percent, from 9 minutes to 3.6 minutes.”
