Vega SmartPRESS

The Vega SmartPRESS RP Extraction Press is the first and only press extractor with the same lifetime operation as a tunnel washer. The unique Vega design eliminates the 4-column design found on other press extractors and replaces them with two 8” solid steel rectangular frames. This robust construction offers superior support and results in long lasting, productive results.

Vega’s German press technology also features a reliable high-speed Rexroth hydraulic system with adjustable pressures up to 62-bar. The Vega SmartPRESS is available in a multiple of sizes and can be customized to accommodate any tunnel washer manufactured.



Discharge direction can be straight through, left or right side.


Built to Last

Frame constructed of certified plate steel, consisting of only four main parts to avoid weak points, fatigue and stress for maximum strength and reliability


More Control Than Ever

The SmartPRESS features a high-grade proportional control operating at all times in a preselected pressure range.
