Here is a pic of an Almex sectional hot vulcanizing press like I used to use. This is a 6 beam unit, but the principle is the same. Those airbags put out some crazy force. Mind you, I’m not proposing doing this by any stretch of the imagination. These cost $10,000. What I’m wondering is if there is a cost effective way to generate 50,000 of clamping force, in order to maple conference room tables. It’s just a though experiment…
