All our presses are motor driven units ready for immediate operation. Just fill the hydraulic reservoir, hook up the electricals and you are ready for production. Rugged construction is another feature with press bases and beds constructed from heavy steel to insure strength and stability.

All valves are interchangeable and supplied by leading component manufactures. They are sub-plate mounted on a common manifold to reduce maintenance.

Most of our presses utilize a processor for easy hook-up with auxiliary equipment. In our compression and transfer molding presses, the degass cycles and ejector reset the standard. Special cycles can be programmed for process requirements.
