We invite you to experience our quality, custom solutions designed to meet your specific pressing requirements.


At Workshop Press, as C-frame hydraulic press manufacturers, we are committed to providing the UK and Irish markets with high quality pressing machinery and metal fabrication equipment. We can supply to almost every industry. This can be from the aerospace and rail sectors through to the automotive and energy generation industries. We specialise in hydraulic presses, and take pride in manufacturing and providing bespoke machines to support a wide range of applications and requirements. One of our most popular machines is the c frame hydraulic press machine. This is a type of hydraulic press that gets its name from the fact that the press is shaped like a “C”.

These types of presses offer a wide range of benefits such as:

  • They typically take up minimal floor space compared to other hydraulic presses
  • There are more access points on a c-frame press which means finished parts can be removed easily and adjustments can take place quicker
  • The design of this press machine reduces stroke deflection but at the same time increases work accessibility
  • They are one of the most cost-effective press machines on the market

What Is A Hydraulic C Frame Press?

A popular type of press machine, a hydraulic c-frame press is sometimes referred to as a gap-frame press. They have been specially designed to take up less floor space than most types of metal fabrication machines. While still offering the same levels of performance and versatility you would expect from a hydraulic press.

Common Applications

C-frame press machines can accommodate a wide range of applications but one of its most common uses is for stamping. During the metal stamping process, the press will create stamped parts from sheet metal such as stainless steel, copper and titanium. The press tool which is referred to as a die, will be used to shape the components from the sheet metal. A ram will then push the sheet metal through the die, resulting in a cut out of the desired shape.

Other metal forming processes that a hydraulic C-frame press can perform include:

  • Assembly
  • Metal Bending
  • Blanking
  • Coining
  • Crimping
  • Draw Work
  • Embossing
  • Forming
  • Compaction
  • Press Fitting
  • Straightening
  • Trimming
  • Piercing

Some industries that often rely on the work of a C-frame hydraulic press include the aerospace, manufacturing, automotive, martine, medical, military, packaging, and food and beverage production industries.
