From 1-750 Tons, We've Got You Covered

Both with over 70 years of experience, Pacific Press & MULTIPRESS have been around for decades, and held under the same ownership for the last several years. Recently, MULTIPRESS and Pacific Press have joined forces to combine their complimentary product lines to effectively offer the market a complete range of C-frame (gap frame) press machines ranging from 1 to 750 tons. Based together in their Mount Carmel, Illinois headquarters, every single machine is 100% designed and built in the USA.

Benefits of C-Frame or Gap Frame Presses

  • Generally take up less floor space than most other hydraulic presses due to their narrow and sturdy C-shaped frame
  • Design provides minimal stroke deflection, work accessibility, increased open area, and work approach advantages
  • Three access points to the operations area allows for easier die maintenance and adjustments, along with removal of scrap metal and finished parts
  • Typically lower in cost compared to other hydraulic press types
