What Is A Hydraulic Press Machine Used For?

Hydraulic presses are usually used for manufacturing techniques such as:

  • Forging
  • Clinching
  • Moulding
  • Blanking
  • Punching

The machines use a hydraulic cylinder to generate a compressive force which is then in use to power the metal forming operations. There are many different types of hydraulic press machines on the market. At Workshop Press we take pride in being a four column hydraulic press supplier which is a common type of press machine. But what is a 4 column press?

Four Column Press Machines And Their Sizes 

Four column presses are a type of press machine ideal for forming, stamping, die-cutting and deep-drawing. At Workshop Press they are available in the following sizes:

  • PPMV-50
  • PPMV-80
  • PPMV-100
  • PPMV-150
  • PPMV-220
  • PPMV-300

The four column presses are equipped with four cylindrical chromed columns. These columns are installed at the corners of the slide and bolster tables. Therefore, ensuring the perfect parallelism and alignment in the vertical movement of the upper table. These machines also have level IV light guards at the front of the machines and two fixed lateral protection panels. They also have one other protection panel which can be opened with a magnetic detector disconnection switch situated at the back of the machine.

How Do You Use A Press Machine?

Hydraulic press machines all have various different operating systems. However our four column press machines have been designed with ease of use in mind. Fitted with a control panel, the operator can select different options before beginning the work. The control panel features a selector for manual, semi-automatic or automatic operation and a selector for the two different cylinder speeds (fast approach speed and slow working speed). It also contains a pressure switch and manometer.  Operation of these PPMV machines is carried out by a foot pedal and the cylinder stroke is easy to adjust with the end-stroke switches on the side of the presses.
