The Body

We start our process with precision laser cutting of premium steel. All cuts are controlled with precise programming providing unmatched quality and precision. The structural components are precisely welded with our state of the art automated welding system. Once the press body is complete it goes in for powder coat paint and bakes in the oven, providing a durable and lasting finish. All components are manufactured in-house at our ISO certified facility. At Monster Smash we wanted programming flexibility and the ability to upgrade a device for a longer shelf life.


The Monster Smash Rosin Press is built to function with temperatures up to 300F, providing one of the highest max temps available on today’s market. The aluminum plates are coated with food grade material to prevent a natural blackening effect from occurring, while simultaneously increasing the heating plates life. Proprietary Monster Smash software will control the heating elements of each individual plate, and our state of the art algorithm will automatically adjust top and bottom plate temperatures by taking into account readings from both plates and outside physical changes that alter plate temperatures.

Pressure and Safety

Monster Smash is manufactured with CE and ISO standards and we take operational safety very seriously. Keeping in mind that Monster Smash is an industrial hydraulic press that exerts 21.5 Tons (Calibrated to our ram diameter and plate size) of pressure and heats up to 300F, we implemented industry-leading safety features. At 21.5T Pressure, an alarm will go off indicating to stop pressing and that structural damage may occur if it increased pressure continues. The control panel will also notify users when plates reach desired temperatures and are ready for pressing.

Product Q&A

Monster Smash Alpha 5 - Dual Heating Plate 21.5 Ton Hydraulic Rosin Press Machine Questions & Answers

Which Material Should I Use?

Yields range significantly and depend largely on the quality of the materials used.

  • Trim: 3% - 8%
  • Shake: 8% - 15%
  • Flower: 15% - 30%
  • Dry Sift: 30% - 60%+
  • Ice Water Extractions: 30% - 70%+

Note: Adequate application of pressure is important to achieve optimal yields and these figures are based on averages tests. Results may vary and depend heavily on your material as well as the operator.

Which Micron Bag To Use?

Depending on your material, the proper micron bags are suggested but results will always vary.

For dry sift and ice water extractions use a 36 micron or 72-micron bag. 72-micron rosin bags will offer higher yields compared to 36-micron rosin bags, but the 36-micron bags will provide the highest quality product.

For flower, trim, and shake, use a 115 micron or 90-micron bag. You will get the highest yield from a 115-micron rosin bag compared with a 90-micron rosin bag, but the 90-micron bags will give you more filtration and slightly higher quality product.

  • 36 micron - Most filtration available, highest quality output rosin for use with small and finer material.
  • 72 micron - High level of filtration, increased yields over 36 micron when pressing smaller and finer material.
  • 90 micron - Higher level of filtration for use with flower, trim, and shake rosin pressing.
  • 115 micron - Ideal level of filtration and high yielding for use with flower, trim, and shake rosin pressing.

What Temperature Is Ideal?

  • Lower temperatures (200°F- 300°F) = more flavor/terpenes, less yield, end material is more stable (shatter-like consistency).
  • Higher temperatures (300°F- 350°F) = less flavor/terpenes, more yield, end material is less stable (sap-like consistency).

How Much Pressure Should I Use?

There is no magic number for how much you need to press but most people use the formula of press pounds/plate surface area.

For example: A 10-ton press = 20,000 lbs. If you have a 3"x5" plate = 15 square inch. Hence, 20,000/15 = 1,333 PSI

Note: These numbers serve as a guide only. Results will always vary depending on temperature and material as well the press you choose. Refer to manufacturers recommendations for best results.
