Production efficiency like no other

New UPM Grada 2000 sets new benchmark for form pressing. A single UPM Grada component can be formed in less than one minute. Imagine that – 60 components in an hour! Best of all, form pressing with UPM Grada can be fully automated. Alternatively, it only takes one person to operate a UPM Grada form pressing unit in manual run. All this with unforeseen design opportunities.

Unforeseen design opportunities

UPM Grada opens whole new world for design. Traditional limitations of form pressing are now things of the past. Pre-machining, multi-stage forming and ability to form only a selected part of the component allow designs previously considered impossible or unfeasible. Form pressed components can also be equipped with inserts for fixing or electricity. All this with production efficiency like no other.
