10 Ton Power Press Machine
Power presses are metalworking machines used primarily to cut, punch, or form metal using tooling (dies) attached to the slide (ram) and bed. The slide has a controlled reciprocating motion toward and away from the bed surface and at right angles to it. It is guided in the frame of the machine — either a “C” frame [open back inclined (OBI)] or straight side frame — to give a definite path of motion.
The two most common types of power presses are mechanically and hydraulically powered. Though these two share common features, the mechanical power press is the most widely used throughout industry and has been the subject of most of the research done, primarily due to its tenure in industry and the number of injuries associated with it.
