Simple answer: A rosin press is a machine that crushes weed into cannabis concentrates and it looks slightly like something a villain would put a superhero in at the end of a film to destroy them.
More complex answer: a rosin press is a machine that uses heat and pressure to create rosin from dry herb. The herb is placed on a slab, whilst the machine forces another slab down on the first — using heat and pressure — which creates the rosin concentrate.
By far the best rosin press is the Pure Pressure Helix 5 Ton Manual Press. It features plates sized 7” x 2.5”, dual heated aluminum plates, and gives you unprecedented control over your rosin production. You can press up to 12 grams of flower at a time, or over 20 grams of dry sift.
Simply listing one model as the best is impossible, given the large variety of types, each of which is designed to fulfill a different role. For that reason, we have broken this article down into the main types of rosin presses and given our top recommendation for each one.
That recommendation represents the best value for money. We also add a few alternatives for those who need something more powerful or those who are on more of a budget.
Manual Rosin presses generate pressure using a hand crank or a twist mechanism. They are best suited for personal home use, and they are also smaller .
The ECO Farm Rosin Press is equipped with an 8-ton manual hydraulic jack to press oil at high pressure. Rosin bellows can be moved for faster heating. And the touch LCD display can show the precise time/temperature, the performance is very good. Continuously update the process and pass thousands of durability tests, making it easier for you to use the product. Good heat dissipation to prevent the machine from overheating and scalding. All our machines are RoHs/CE certified and all power plugs are UL certified to ensure quality.
Hydraulic rosin presses are the next step up. They still use hand pumps to generate pressure, but actual hydraulic cylinders are doing most of the work. Hydraulic presses generally come in the 5 to 20 ton range and are smaller and lighter than pneumatic presses. Since they don’t require an air compressor, they are much quieter, but they do require manual pumping. For that reason, they are more suited for home use than for a commercial operation.
ECO FARM 8 TON POWER ROSIN PRESS HYDRAULIC ROSIN PRESS MACHINE is lightweight yet powerful and sturdy. Maximum pressure up to 8 tons. 14000 psi Ram hydraulic jacks ensure successful pressing at relatively low temperatures. 5" x 2.5" Dual Heating Plates with Touch Screen Temperature Control and Push Timer. No additional equipment required, save energy with automatic sleep/wake mode. The ergonomic handle design allows you to move the press easily. It is suitable for a variety of flat materials, especially for oil extraction. Digital timer and temperature controller — preset the desired time and sound an audible alarm when the time is up. Set the desired temperature (Fahrenheit) and when the preset temperature is reached, the element will stop heating.
Pneumatic rosin presses require no hand cranking or pumping. They run with a click of the button.The downside is that they need an air compressor to operate and that they are generally quite large and heavy. Luckily, you can just use any standard air compressor, though it still adds to the cost. Not to mention the noise.Because they run without any manual effort, pneumatic rosin presses are great for processing large volumes efficiently. This makes them ideal for commercial applications.Few home users have the need for a pneumatic press, though a hybrid press (can be used manually/hydraulically or pneumatically) makes sense for a home user considering upgrading in the future.
ECO Farm pneumatic automatic rosin dab tech hot rosin heat press type is pneumatic automatic is a high quality and high pressure heat press specially designed for the extraction of rosin, wax and essential oils. It is also ideal for heat transfer printing on T-shirts, jackets, mouse pads, tiles and more. It is heavy duty and comes with a digital timer. For rosin hot press with high pressure uniform area, double-sided heating, each heating plate has independent LCD time thermometer control Fahrenheit or Celsius switchable, uniform pressure. The latest LCD temperature and time controller, with professional appearance, makes reading time and temperature more accurate. Fully commercial grade removable controller box.
Electric rosin presses are the newest type and the easiest to use. They operate at the push of a button just like pneumatic models, but they use an electric pump, which does not require an air compressor or any other extras. You can use your electric presses straight out of the box.
ECO FARM Rosin Press Double Heating Plate Electric Automatic 1 Ton Power Rosin Heat Press is silent without air compressor. Double-sided heating, each heating plate has individual LCD time thermometer control. Pure motor, no hydraulic oil, more stable and longer life. The smallest volume and weight in history, convenient for express delivery, saving freight
Hybrid rosin presses use hydraulic cylinders, but give you the option of controling them with a hand pump, a pneumatic pump or an electric pump. This gives you a large amount of flexibility to upgrade your operation without having to purchase a new press.Most hybrid models are made for commercial application.
At the touch of a button, the DW8000 Hybrid Rosin Heat Press is capable of generating up to 4 tons of pressure between its plates. The machine is easy to use, and within minutes of opening the box, you can enjoy freshly pressed extracts from the comfort of your home. Contains the DW8000 instruction manual. The machine is available in two versions: 110V for North America and 220V for European and Australian customers. Note that 220V presses do not ship to the US.
