Number of cylinders
Number of the hydraulic cylinders in a veneer press.
The maximum total pressure of the press depends on the number and diameter of the cylinders. The more cylinders are used, the more even is the distribution of the pressure.
Presses with more than 4 cylinders often offer the possibility to shut off the outer cylinders (e.g. see ACE Electrical cylinder exclusion). This allows the pressing with evenly distributed pressure even if the working table is not fully loaded.
