    No, it isn't. You just have to search in the dictionary of the RAE the meanings of calandria (Word with two different etymologies: one referring to birds and another one to press machines) and the meaning of calandra (unrelated with press machines).

    We appreciate your feedback. Calandria is indeed the correct spelling for the press. From DRAE:

    calandria
    Del fr. calandre; propiamente 'calandria', por la similitud entre el canto del ave y el sonido de la máquina.
    1. f. Máquina compuesta de varios cilindros giratorios, calentados generalmente a vapor, que sirven para prensar y satinar ciertas telas o el papel, y para planchar la ropa blanca.
