Works in a laboratory with Wabash Presses

No matter the industry, Carver and Wabash presses are trusted, indispensable tools for researchers and developers around the world — including at the top national labs and universities in the U.S. In fact, many of our customers feature presses in their in-house R&D labs for uses including batch testing of materials before big production runs.

As the world’s leading lab presses, Wabash equipment performs some of the most demanding research processes, including:

  • Materials research for ceramics, composites, construction materials, powder metals, printed circuit boards, rubber, silicone and other elastomers, thermoplastic resins and thermosets
  • Quality and performance testing of physical properties: compression strength, flexural strength, flow and color dispersion
  • Laboratory testing: ASTM test plaque or bar molds for polyethylene and polypropylene
  • Destructive testing
  • Chemicals testing
  • Battery development for electric vehicles (EVs)
  • Lamination testing for wood alternatives (plastic planking, decking, veneers) and vinyl flooring and tiles.
  • Other applications: composite molding, compression molding, crushing, laminating, encapsulation, extrusion, forming, insert pressing, insert molding, splice molding, transfer molding, and vulcanizing specialized applications
