Willmes, the inventor of the tank press, has been designing and building wine presses for almost 60 years. They are constantly seeking improvements in construction and performance of their press machinery. Willmes machinery is also backed by the technical expertise of both Willmes and Scott technicians.

A new generation of Willmes presses has now come to the forefront – The MERLIN universal press and the SIGMA tank press. Both presses feature patented central juice extraction channels that reduce the distance that juice must travel, allowing for higher juice extraction at lower pressures. Free-run juice can drain during the entire filling process.
