The screw press features a central screw shaft or two parallel vertical ones in a wooden structure that applied constant and continuous pressure to grapes and olives. Prompted by studies to improve the pressing mechanism, the vertical shaft is the most prized feature of this device, an example of the application in the mechanical sphere, this time, of Archimedes' screw.
