A Few Examples of Horizontal Press Applications

〉 Rail Straightening & Contouring

Shaped anvils to fit the contour of the rail permit fast straightening as well as precise  contouring.  Easy access to the working area minimizes handling time. Scale and dirt drop harmlessly through the housings.


〉 Punching

The horizontal press is designed for heavy duty punching. The extra large area for oil on the bottom of the piston cushions the shock of breakthrough.


〉 Structural Straightening & Contouring

Adjustable die blocks may by mounted on the end lug and tool holder for straightening as well as precise contouring.  Material may be fed in on rollers or held by an overhead crane, either way handling is easier because of the horizontal position of the machine.


〉 Plate Straightening

Deep throated horizontal presses are available to allow straightening to the center of a six foot or eight foot wide plate.
