OCEM HYDRAULIC “HYPER” PRESSES

OCEM’s complete range of hydraulic hyper presses is the result of a long tradition, deep experience, and high technical evolution in concrete-agglomerate pressing processes. It includes exclusive international patents, high-tech design and excellent quality standards, leading to high performance and reliability from many years of experience in heavy-duty production operations.

TWO PRESSING TECHNOLOGIES ARE AVAILABLE:

  • DOUBLE LAYER “HERMETIC” PRESSES

Specially developed to produce “DOUBLE-LAYER” thick “Terrazzo” tiles, pavers, and slabs, mainly for outdoor paving applications.

  • SINGLE LAYER FILTER PRESSES

Specially developed to produce “SINGLE LAYER” thin tiles and slabs (“Terrazzo” and/or advanced engineered stones) of reduced thickness and weight, specially indicated for indoor floorings and/or claddings, for outdoor floorings and facades applications.

  • DOUBLE LAYER + SINGLE LAYER PRESSES

Some OCEM presses are designed with suitable pressing powers to operate either as “hermetic presses” or as “single layer filter presses” in order to produce, once set up with the specific different accessories, either “DOUBLE LAYER” or “SINGLE LAYER” tiles and slabs. These particular OCEM presses can be considered as a possible investment “step1” for a new production plant, allowing the necessary flexibility to supply different projects for both outdoor and indoor applications. But in case the production requirements of the plant will in the future increase and specialize, the first press can be i.e. specialized to produce double layer products, and a second OCEM press could be added and specialized to produce only single layer products.

A wide range of presses are available, from small semi-automatic rotative units with 2 stations, 145/195 tons of pressing power and productivity of 100-150 m2/8h, up to the big rotary presses with 4-6 or even 7 stations, of 1400 + 80 tons pressing power and productivity up to 2.000+ m2/8 hour.

DIFFERENT CONCRETE-AGGLOMERATE MIX DESIGNS

Are possible to reach variegate aesthetic results, using assorted aggregates with different hardness, colors and sizes, different concrete coloring pigments and a wide range of “mold bases” which can reproduce flat or textured (i.e. geometric or stone like) surfaces.

DIFFERENT PRODUCTION PLANTS

Can be proposed to our Client based on the different press models: from small manual production units, to middle-size semi-automatic plants, up to powerful and fully automated units.

PRODUCTS FROM THE OCEM «HYPER-PRESSES»

DOUBLE LAYER

OUTDOOR + INDOOR
TILE AND SLAB

DOUBLE LAYER tiles and slabs are composed of a first layer poured with a volumetric doser into the press molds and followed by a second layer composed by a semi-dry base mix which gives the required thickness and mechanical resistance.
The produced elements, usually with high thickness (up to 100 – 120 mm max) and weight, are mainly used for outdoor floorings such as sidewalks and roads paving but they are also used, duly grinded and polished for indoor flooring.

SINGLE LAYER

INDOOR + OUTDOOR
TILES AND SLABS

Concrete marble-agglomerate SINGLE LAYER TILES are a very attractive and elegant alternative to natural and quartz stones or ceramic tiles. These eco-friendly “concrete-based” engineered stones can be produced in different compositions and patterns, are highly fire resistant and can be re-polished throughout the years.


Single-layer concrete-agglomerate SLABS can be used for indoor applications such as steps and risers, vanity and kitchen tops and are equally suitable for outdoor applications such as facades and ventilated facades.

FINISHING MACHINES

and complete VAP finishing lines for concrete-agglomerate outdoor and indoor products

OCEM can supply different machines for surface finishing solutions to produce so-called “Value Added Products (VAP)” according to any customer’s requirements.
Different VAP plants including «wet» or «dry» finishing machines designed to process any possible concrete-agglomerate products, such as Tiles, Slabs, Wet Cast products, Pavers, Cement Blocks or Kerbstones also produced with traditional Vibro-Presses or Block making Machines.

R&D - Research
and Development

OCEM and its team of strategic partners consider Research and Development an important priority to support with the experience the machines technical evolution. Experienced engineers are available also for our international customers to test traditional or innovative concrete-agglomerate mix designs results under “hermetic” double-layer pressing or under single-layer “filter-pressing”. After the necessary curing period, the produced tiles and slabs are sent to a Certified Laboratories to check the obtained technical performances such as mechanical resistances, water absorption % and other parameters as per the European or other international standards. Also different finishing tests can be executed…

The Ocem Family
                 Since 1926

OCEM was established in 1926 in Florence (Italy) by Mr. Ugo Giannelli Sr., grandfather of today’s company CEO Eng. Ugo Giannelli Jr., who represents the third generation of the owners’ family.
At the beginning of WW2, the company employed about 400 people. In 1948, immediately after the war when the production had to be suspended, OCEM resumed its activities and production; in 1953, due to the increasing demand of building materials, the company started to produce innovative HERMETIC HYDRAULIC ROTARY PRESSES for the production of different types of double-layer concrete-agglomerate tiles for indoor and outdoor. Since then OCEM has always maintained its focus on presses and automatic plants increasing its capacities and technical leadership.
