Horizontal Hydraulic Presses

Ideal for special or unusual applications- Pacific’s Horizontal press line offers the unique capability of bar, shaft, and plate straightening, bending, punching, forming and cutting on a horizontal plane.

The horizontal press is ideally suited to bar, shaft, and plate straightening, and in addition may be fitted with a number of tools to perform such work as bar, angle and channel cut-off, rail/structural contouring & straightening, and numerous other applications where the horizontal configuration and smooth, long stroke hydraulic power are assets.

Throat depth modifications are offered up to 48”, allowing plate straightening capabilities not available on vertical configuration machines. The cost savings to the user in material handling time alone are significant compared to other types of equipment. A fully adjustable cam and switch allows the operator to alter the position of the speed change at will.

Horizontal presses have a unique hydraulic system that protects itself from overloads, and is offered with the two speed system as standard. The ram advances the work in the “rapid advance” mode and then automatically shifts to a slow pressing speed (at full tonnage) to accomplish the work. A fully adjustable cam and switch allows the operator to alter the position of the speed change at will.

The stroke is infinitely adjustable (within its range) to reduce the non-productive portion of the working stroke. When the ram reaches the stroke limit switch setting, it automatically returns to the rear position.

A removable T-slotted tool holder provides the means to attach various tools such as straightening or die blocks to the ram. Heavy rolled steel interlocked plate construction ensures long life of the frame and hydraulic packings.
