Quantity Limits for Willow Bath Bomb Press

Question:

What manufacturing limit is specified for the Willow Bath Bomb Press? We make about 100 bombs an hour, 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Would it hold up making that quantity and is that guaranteed?

Answer:

There is no limit that we know of. The production numbers would be relative to the number of presses, people and ability of the producer to set up and maintain an efficient production.

There is a warranty, not sure what else is needed here.

You may want to consider the EZ Way Bath Bomb Press™. Its Pneumatic (Air Powered) which of course will be much faster.

Cleaning your Bath Bomb Press

Question:

How do you clean the press and surrounding material?

Answer:

Just use a bench brush, such as the one we carry in our accessories section, to brush away excess from the work surfaces.

A plastic putty knife works well to scrape anything clinging to the work bench and press table.

Press One Bath Bomb every 15 Seconds

Question:

Does the 10-15 second time when using the Willow Bath Bomb Press™ include pouring in the mixture?

Answer:

Yes, with a little experience this should be easy to do. This does not include of course, mixing the materials. Some mix a lot at a time and some just few pieces at a time. The number of ingredients used, measuring methods, etc. will also affect how quickly the batch is mixed and ready to press.

In all cases; the use of efficient production methods, will speed the number of pieces per minute.

For example:

  • Having all the dry ingredients measured and mixed.
  • Having all the liquids mixed.
  • Multiple batches in readiness to combine ingredients, set up for the entire days work.
  • Having a fast and effective means of mixing.
  • Having work space height, stools, access, drying racks and work flow properly arranged, will make a world of difference.
  • A few minors factors that are often forgotten are clean up, breaks, start up, think time, etc.
  • These can add up to an amazing amount of lost time.
  • When you set up to produce, try to do it for an entire work day.

For the production described, screw the Press down to your work table. It will beef up the press table and also prevent it from moving around.

Adjust depth for Cylinder, Cuber and Tablet molds

Question:

How do you adjust the depth for the Cylinder, Cuber and Tablet molds?

Answer:

The press can be set to stop at most any depth, so if you wanted 1″ deep, then you could adjust it accordingly.

Most people use the volume of material to set depth and just go more by feel. In the end this is quicker.

The extra depth of the mold, allows you to put in whatever material you need for density and weight.
