GENERAL PURPOSE COMPRESSION ACCESSORIES

2.6

Compression platens and anvils are available in a range of sizes and force capacities to suit applications from rigid foam to concrete. Optional self-aligning spherical seatings are available for most platens where precise parallelism is needed. Some applications (for example, flexible foam and composites) require more specific compression solutions so please refer to the Application Specific Grips and Fixtures described in Section 2.1.
