© Pagnoni Impianti 2008

Leader in construction of presses and complete pressing lines for more than 150 years.
In its age-old history, Pagnoni reveals an entrepreneurial tenacity truly exemplary. Since its foundation, in 1848, the family itself has been always steadily at the head of the company. Two brothers, for five generations, share the responsibility of leading the company through historical events and economic trends as proof of an uncommon devotion and constancy. This talent is still reflected in the guidance of the company, that has always proposed, and still offers, an exclusive customised service.
Over the various ages, the company turned out to be specialist in the construction of presses for many products
The force of the company is unquestionably its flexibility and dynamism, maintained to meet the requirements of each customer to supply a made-to-order service.
The competence of constructing turn-key projects, press lines or single machines, studied for a specific order, is ensured by the size of the company, which has been intentionally kept contained to provide personal control of all phases of the construction process with the utmost care to offer the customers "state of the science" technology and "old world" craftsmanship. With this history Pagnoni can face new challenges with the same old beliefs with ever continuing technological and human resources.
Since the beginning of its history, Pagnoni has always given great value to the technological innovation, thus gaining certification in the National Register of Research Laboratories: Pagnoni is the only company in Italy that can boast such acknowledgment in this field.
The Pagnoni R&D laboratory promotes research, experimentation and development of the most advanced technology to propose to the market the most effective solutions for process technology and new product development.
In 1848, during the important socio-economic events that changed Europe, two brothers decided to start an activity of mechanical construction, thus founding the “ Fratelli Pagnoni Company”. They were Stefano and Martino Pagnoni, whose family had a mill in Monza for centuries.

When Italy was unified, the company of Monza was already an established entrepreneurial success.
The huge and diversified production of mills and machines for pasta factories and oil mills required the Company to build a bigger factory and a foundry.

The First World War stopped the continuous growth of the company.
At the end of the conflict, Nicola Pagnoni, grandchild of one of the company founders, started the production of hot plate presses, especially for plywood. Since then, the production of machines for the pressing of wooden panels is the heart of the company's production.
Pagnoni overcame even the tragic Second World War, with much effort and initiative.
During the economic boom following the conflict, Giuseppe and Franco Pagnoni succeeded in projecting the company onto the global market, focusing its production on presses for wood based panels and building plants all over the world.

Nowadays, “Pagnoni Impianti S.r.l.”, led by Aldo and Giorgio Pagnoni, is a leader in the construction of pressing lines for particleboards, MDF, short-cycle lamination lines and HPL, of presses for plywood and multi-layer, engineered lumber/parquet and in many other fields where it reveals its technological knowledge and competences.
In the field of wood and furniture, electronics, rubber, composed materials, Pagnoni offers machines innovatively inspired, always obtaining the same results: the customers’ satisfaction.
Pagnoni Impianti provides care in the security and prevention of work accidents, and its products are CE marked, according to 89/392/CEE Law.
Pagnoni has built a great number of lines with single, double and multi-opening presses having capacity output range from 50 up to 1,000 m3/day, thus satisfying customers’ more different requests in terms of sizes, thickness and product quality. Among the several technical innovations introduced by Pagnoni in this field can be mentioned, the electronic space bars to control the given board thickness without manual operations, the new hydraulic circuits to minimize dead times and to regulate the pressing according to the board size, and the powerful and sophisticated continuous pre-compressor.
The common denominator of all Pagnoni machinery, is construction simplicity, sturdiness and durability: the Pagnoni manufacturing concept for more than 150 years.
This is the field where Pagnoni has developed its expertise in designing presses of gigantic dimensions for massive production capacity, up to 1000 m3/day.

The press lines, designed in the latest years, have given the Company the opening to develop a unique and complete product line.

Every new plant benefits from improvements and innovative technical solutions, allowing Pagnoni to be listed with the world's limited number of MDF producers of single and multi daylight presses.
The company's decision not to develop a continuous press for raw board production, has given Pagnoni the great opportunity to implement machine technology of single and multi-opening presses and consequently to enter a market niche of those producers requiring special product, of improved properties and value added market access, almost impossible to obtain with continuous production lines.
Having been in the field of plywood since the beginning of the XIX century, Pagnoni can boast a unique experience, having built more than 270 presses all over the world, of many different characteristics and sizes.

The solutions accomplished are distinguished by cold pre-presses, single and multi-openings hot presses with up to 40 openings.

The final products cover the whole range on the market: ureic and phenolic bonded plywood and specialty technical plywood, as well as 3 or 5 layer blockboard with one or more cores.
The constant growth of world markets demands new technologies to increase and improve production.
In veneering, furniture tops and engineered parquet, the press is the bottleneck of the whole process: the conventional multi-daylight presses are too slow and high frequency presses have too often frustrated the hopes of many utilizers.
The new continuous press PAGNONI EASYLAM® with four independent thermal regulation circuits, 40 m/min (130 ft/minute) max mechanical speed, specific press regulation up to 80 N/cm2 (116 PSI) and electronic opening regulation control, is the solution to overcome the bottleneck.
The PAGNONI EASYLAM® is an endless double steel belt press for veneered panels, furniture tops and multi-layer parquet, designed for fast production, quality and flexibility.
PAGNONI EASYLAM® is available in different standard sizes with width varying from 350 mm to 2300 mm and length from 1900 mm to 8200 mm. The flexibility in size allows the combination of widths and lengths to fit all customers technical and commercial requirements.

Advantages of PAGNONI EASYLAM® as regards to traditional presses
Press installation doesn’t require thick foundations: resulting in lower cost for civil and erection works, maintenance and cleaning.
- Maximum press height, from floor level, less then 3.00m: allows for lower installation and maintenance costs.
- No dead time for press loading and unloading: means production increase and flexibility to operate with quick reaction glues.
- Possibility to press simultaneously panels having different sizes without causing any damage to the press: extreme production flexibility.
- Press opening calibration with electronic control: different panels thickness management flexibility .
- Pressing times reduced up to 20 times, as regards to static hot presses: this fast cycle time means increased capacity and reduced production cost.
