AD12 Standard


The standard version of the AD12 is equipped with one output loading spindle for finished records. The press is also available in other configurations, such as an output spindle shifter version and a sleeving unit version. Learn more about the available options below. All AD12 versions come with these essential components:


The hydraulic pump unit is dedicated to one AD12 press.


This preplasticizing extruder melts the material, forming a cake within a cup controlled by air cylinders. Once filled, the cup opens, and air cylinders carry the cake, held by two ”fingers,” to the center of the press. Cake weight can be adjusted via the touch screen.


One set of moulds. All Pheenix Alpha moulds are produced according to Toolex Alpha's orginal specifications.

Moulds are available for different sizes and record weights. The moulds are made to fit in the AD12 automatic press and all moulds come with Toolex standard profile.
