Block moulding machines / EMTower


With the introduction of the EMTower block mold series, Erlenbach set new standards in the production of EPS blocks. Through continuous ongoing development, the plants meet all requirements in terms of quality and economy, because modern technology enables you to adapt to almost any change in the market.

None of our block molding machines EMTower's off the rack. Each plant is individually designed for you and tailored to your personal requirements. To be sure you’re optimally equipped for the future.


Strong performance for strong tasks

With the EMTower, you can rely on a block molding machine that leaves nothing to be desired:

  • Efficient: Fast filling and flow optimised steaming system
  • Low maintenance screen sections with approx. 11% free steaming area
  • Individually adapted vacuum system
  • Homogeneous density and fusing
  • Lengths and widths infinitely adjustable


Results you can work with

Thanks to the Erlenbach anti-bending system, the EMTower block machine works even more efficiently. The technology prevents deformation of the edge plates during cutting. The benefits:

  • No additional “elastification” necessary
  • Shortening of storage time
  • Reduction of steam consumption through partial mechanical generation of foam pressure
  • Improved insulation properties without increasing material density

Typical applications

  • EPS processing for the building industry
  • Production of insulating materials, system boards, etc.
  • Direct cutting

Operating pressure

  • EPS processing: up to 1.6 bar
