German, Swiss or Austrian? Friction screw press

Recommended Posts

G'day All,

Am looking at a friction screw press that is a long way from it's place of creation. It's currently residing in the southern hemisphere and I have very little information about it's origins.

I took a photograph of the name/maker's plate (forgot to get one of the actual machine, but it is the usual configuration) and can make out the general inforation; stroke, rpm, lots of kg's, date and power requirements...

The makers symbol is, however, my slumbling point. It looks to contain C, S, L, A and G, but my favourite search engines fail to bring up anything obvious to my non-Deutsch speaking notice.

It is not vital that I know the maker, it is a lovely old press that works beautifully, but curiosity is getting the better of me.

If anyone out there could point me in the right direction I would be most grateful. 

Thank you for your time.

My apologies for the delay, I have not been back to get a proper image of the press in question. I have, however, found an old photograph of it, which I have attached.

Any information about the maker would be greatly appreciated.
