Hydraulic Presses - Benefits
The benefits of hydraulic presses are:
Full Tonnage Throughout The Stroke
Unlike mechanical presses, hydraulic presses have the ability to deliver
full pressing force anywhere in the range of stroke. Mechanical presses
develop full force at bottom of stroke only.
It is easy to design the hydraulic press to meet the customers' specific
requirements such as large bed sizes with little tonnage or high tonnage for
small work area.
In hydraulic press, users are able to adjust tonnage and maximize cycle
time. More efficiency can be achieved by eliminating excessive ram movement
or changing pressure or maintaining ram speeds.
Dedicated or Multi-Functional
The hydraulic presses can be designed to any level of sophistication right
from the simple dedicated cell press or a fully integrated multi-purpose
system. The flexibility can be further increased through additional stroke
capability for reducing set-up time and easing die changes.
Lower Up Front Costs / Fast ROI
Hydraulic presses are the most simple in design with proven, readily
available hydraulic components. Unlike mechanical presses where basic
components are expensive and often custom built, hydraulic presses are much
less expensive up-front in long term operation.
No Design Limitations
Hydraulic presses are designed for multitude operations such as up acting,
down acting, side acting and multi action. The power systems are placed
directly above or below as well as remote from the press.
Hydraulic relief valves in hydraulic circuits provide built-in overload
protection. The press force can't exceed the allowed pressure. Such
attainable limiting controls maximum force.
Unlimited Control Options
Hydraulic presses are controlled through various ways from basic relays to
sophisticated PLC control. Operator interfaces can be added to press systems
to facilitate ease of job. Pressure holding, speed control and dynamic
adjustments can be controlled. Ram force and speed can be controlled in any
The control over forces and motions in hydraulic presses empowers them to
provide greater overall quality of a manufactured part than many other types
