Rubber Vulcanizing Presses
Almex Press Solutions

Beginning in 1962, Shaw-Almex has designed and manufactured both stock and custom presses for specific needs in a variety of industries, including conveyor belts, mining, rubber mats (both rubber and rubber crumb), and abrasion-resistant products. The company further diversified in the 1990’s, expanding into the Woodworking industry, Composites industry (laminating and curing), as well as the Aerospace and Photovoltaic (PV) or Solar Panel industries.

Combining technologies from multiple different disciplines allows Shaw Almex to provide unique, innovative and cost-effective solutions to a multitude of different press requirements. Add the best service and customer support in the industry, and you have a “win-win” partnership with Shaw Almex, their designers, and field technicians.

Shaw Almex has sold the Woodworking Division (ThermoLaminators and ThermoFormers) to Black Brothers of Mendota, IL.
