What Is A Hydraulic Press? The basic concept of a hydraulic press is a machine that is based on fluid-filled cylinders. We uniquely call these hydraulic cylinders. The cylinder connects to a hydraulic pump system. Together, they generate and exert a compressive force. This then enables mechanical pressing and lifting of heavy loads.

Hydraulic press machines are in use in most industries. Accordingly, the design of the press is dependant on what it is being used for. How the press is configured also depends on the task at hand. You can easily customise a hydraulic press to suit the application. Bespoke custom presses are very common and the bespoke features ideally fit the needs and application of the customer. You can use a hydraulic press machine for a wide range of applications. For instance, some typical applications include pressing steel plates, punching holes in metal, shearing, forming, drawing, compaction of materials, bending, shaping and forming. This is not an all-inclusive list as the applications that require pressing are endless. Therefore, a hydraulic press is often used to accomplish the process.


How Does A Hydraulic System Work?

A hydraulic system is made up of several main components. A motor driving a hydraulic pump, hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic hoses, and flow control valve. The motor drives the pump pushing hydraulic fluid to the hydraulic cylinder through the hoses delivering fluid power to the cylinder. After that, in order to deliver the fluid to the cylinder, the fluid has to pass through the valves and hoses. This is where the hydraulic energy converts back into mechanical energy. Furthermore, the valves direct the flow of the liquid and relieve pressure when needed.


Why Use A Hydraulic Press?

Our hydraulic presses are very flexible. You will find they come in a wide variety of configurations, shapes, and forms. Hydraulic presses are simple, easy, and inexpensive to maintain. When you purchase the correct press that has been built out of top quality materials and components, a hydraulic press will last a lifetime.


Types Of Hydraulic Press Machines

There is a wide of hydraulic press machines, such as:

  • Four column hydraulic press
  • Production Presses
  • C-Frame Single column hydraulic
  • Horizontal hydraulic press
  • Cambering Presses
  • Vertical frame hydraulic press
  • Universal hydraulic press also known as a Workshop Press


Four Column Hydraulic Press

A four column hydraulic press has a hydraulic cylinder that attaches to the top plate or slide. The four columns are positioned at the corners of the slide plate and they run through heavy duty collars. Moreover, the four columns ensure a constant parallel position of the slide plate in respect to the bolster plate. This is the case even when working pressure is exerted onto the slide plate.


Why Use A Four Column Hydraulic Press?

We supply standard four column presses for a variety of applications in metalworking and other fields. You can also use them for forming plastics and carbon fibre, materials deep-drawing, die-cutting, metal forming, stamping and pressing processes. They perform to extremely high degree of accuracy.
