Fontijne Presses LabTop

Welcome to Product Spotlight. We know there are many factors to consider when choosing your next bit of kit, and the aim of this series is to give you everything you need to make the most informed decision for your business. Whether you’re starting out, upgrading, or expanding, Intelicare can add value to your project, and we’re with you every step of the way from project management to UK based servicing and aftercare. Today we are taking a look at Fontijne Presses’ LabTop

The LabTop Series
Fontijne Presses’ benchtop LabTop series – available with a press range of 150 or 300kN – is an automated hydraulic laboratory press, which combines the modest footprint of the manually operated LabManual machines with the automated ProView control system that is used in the LabEcon and LabPro series. The critically acclaimed LabTop series is known for its accurate and consistent pressing quality, and is therefore widely chosen as sample preparation press for quality control and R&D.


Key Benefits

  • Two available options: 150 kN or 300 kN
  • Safety features include an integrated safety shield
  • Small footprint with impressive results
  • An inbuilt, user friendly 15’’ touch screen
  • Fontijne Expertise
  • UK based commissioning and servicing from Intelicare specialists

Good to Know
Depending on the model – 150 or 300 – the press range goes up to 150 or 300 kN at 300°C. Regardless of the model or settings used, the results will always be accurate and consistent. Thanks to its small footprint and its 230V connection, the LabTop can easily get installed in any lab. Its ergonomic design and straightforward touchscreen interface are highly appreciated by lab technicians.

Furthermore, the LabTop series incorporates many additional safety features, such as a fixed upper platen, an emergency stop system and a safety shield.

The LabTop series is recommended for all demanding quality control and R&D applications where accuracy and consistency are prerequisites.

The LabTop press is delivered with our ProView control system which includes a 15” touch screen for temperature and closing force control. The large screen area of the ProView system gives the user a very good view on the settings and progress of the LabTop as well as extra comfort to control the unit.

The press also includes an automatic venting system/degassing stroke that allows to vent the unit by automatically opening and closing – after a preset period of time – the press.
