National labs (Sandia, Oak Ridge, Los Alamos, etc.) and renowned universities love Carver presses — with good reason. Whether hand-operated or automated, our benchtop presses pack a big punch for a nearly limitless range of testing. Just a few examples spanning multiple industries include:

  • ASTM test plaque or bar molds for polyethylene and polypropylene
  • Fat content testing for snack foods (chips, nuts, seeds)
  • Pharmaceutical pelletizing
  • KBr (potassium bromide) pelletizing for infrared (IR) spectroscopy and metal forming (dimpling)
  • Credit card/ID card development
