Pressmach’s hot, warm, and cold forge presses are built for the most intensive applications in metal forming, all the way from shaping massive multi-ton parts to hot heading aerospace bolts. Our wide range of forge presses can incorporate knuckle joint drives, link drives, or hydraulics. This flexibility allows us to help you consistently achieve the perfect press production stroke for your most demanding jobs.
HOT FORGE PRESSES
Pressmach Hot Forge Presses are manufactured in a state-of-the-art facility, adhering to the most rigid manufacturing standards, with models available in tonnages up to 12.000 tons. Our Forge Presses are built to last, utilizing heavy duty heat-treated/stress-relieved frames, massive pitman arms, and eccentric shafts rated at 200% overload.
COLD FORGE PRESSES
Our KNP Line of Heavy Duty Cold Forge Presses are available in a range from 300 ton to 4000 ton capacity. The front-to-back knuckle joint drive provides the high compression and dwell action required to optimize material flow in your dies. The monoblock frames are heat-treated and stress-relieved, and the drive train incorporates a wet clutch and brake. To provide strength and stability, dual pitmans are used with the main drive gear to power the knuckle joint drive train. The press also features a patented die “un-sticking” slide adjustment device, tonnage monitor and a centralized lubrication system with alarm.
HOT HEADING & TRIM PRESSES
Our line of Trim & Hot Heading Presses, available in Gap Frame or Straight Side, are setting a new standard in the industry. Our unique front loading sliding table design vastly improves production of long and short bolts through ergonomic, purposeful design and flexibility. Special custom considerations such heat shields or special cutouts in the bolster and lower frames can be accommodated for conveyor removal of parts or hot scrap.
Forging presses are the second group of forging machines regularly used in impression die and large open die forging. They are commonly classified as mechanical or hydraulic, based on the means used to deliver energy. Presses deliver energy more slowly than do hammers. They are used for all alloy groups, and are used in preference to hammers for alloys that require slow deformation rates, such as harder aluminum alloys and most of the magnesium alloys. As with hammers, they usually operate vertically. The upper die is attached to the ram, and the downward stroke of the ram exerts force on the workpiece.
Open Die Forging Press is specialized in various upsetting, piercing, stretching, flattening process. Various parameters like pressure, position and time can be set and instantly displayed on line. The press is mainly used in thermal power generation equipment industry (such as steam turbine vanes), wind power generation equipment industry (such as flanges), pressure vessel industry, petrochemical equipment industry, metallurgical equipment, aerospace industry, railway industry. Main features of the press include lower noise, Energy saving and environment friendly, full automation and easy maintenance.
Close Die Forging Press is specialized in various die forging (hot die forging, close die forging, isothermal forging), hot extrusion process, cold extrusion process, trimming, sizing process. Various parameters like pressure, position and time can be set and instantly displayed on line. Main features of the press include lower noise, Energy saving and environment friendly, full automation and easy maintenance. The press is used in railway industry (such as railway wheels), aerospace industry (such as aeroplane parts/components), unclear industry, maritime industry and other heavy machinery industry.
