C-Frame (Gap) Presses

Pacific has a wide variety of C-Frame (Gap) presses available to meet every application and budget!

For decades, the Pacific C-frame hydraulic press has been unrivaled in quality. With every machine designed and built for robust precision, all C-frame presses have a repeatability standard of .001” under load, and enjoy key features.

Over 75 years ago, Pacific built the first hydraulic press brake. Today, we have over 15,000 installations in the field, and we're still making robust, precision machines in the heart of America. Stress relieved throats for long machine life, Pacific offers C-frame press models up to 750 tons.  With a wide variety of options available, each press can be customized to fit your production requirements.

Pacific’s C-frame presses are fast and easy to set up and have been used in a broad range of jobs, from single-cycle operations to automated cell components.
