Leader in Straight Side Hydraulic Presses


Providing the very best in custom straight side hydraulic presses.

Pacific’s Straight Side Press Design is the Choice for the Most Demanding Applications.

Up to 3,000 Tons, We've Got You Covered

Since 1945, Pacific Press Technologies has been known for quality machines designed and manufactured in Mount Carmel, Illinois.  With thousands of machines sold, we take pride in producing robust, heavy duty machines that deliver precise, reliable results.

Pacific offers single and double cylinder straight side presses, also known as gib-guided presses, as straight side designs often include gibbing. 

Gibs are press components that guide the reciprocating motion of the ram to maintain superior squareness and parallelism throughout the stroke.  Gib-guided designs are the frame style of choice for the most demanding applications.

Benefits of Straight Side / Gib-Guided Presses

 Best option for off-center loading operations

  6 points of contact on the slide ensures complete control

  Maximum stability with extremely low deflection

✔  Exceptional punch and die alignment with every stroke
