Custom built laminating press. USED, does not operate to designed specifications

This is a large custom built laminating press which has never operated to required specifications to complete the work it was designed for. It does work to some extent but not at the specified psi loads it was intended to handle. It will pressurize but it loses pressure over time. Also, the material used in the construction of the press does show signs of stress under heavy loads. This press may be repairable by replacing valves or adding check valves but no effort has been made to make this a workable press and repairs may not be possible. The eight hydraulic jacks are good, as is the motor and pump. There is a significant amount of metal used in the construction of this machine which also has considerable value.

It is located in the Percival Hall building on the Evansdale campus of West Virginia University. A flat bed truck will be needed as this unit is in two large very heavy pieces. Assistance with loading is available.

Sold As is, where is.
