Technology
   Press Technology - Drive / Actuation       
   Your choices are...         
   Air / Pneumatic       The press is driven or powered by a pneumatic cylinder. 
   Hydraulic       The press is driven or powered by a hydraulic cylinder. Hydraulic presses can generate extremely high forces to form metals or other materials. 
   Hydro-mechanical       Hydro-mechanical presses are driven by a hydraulic cylinder or hydraulic motor. 
   Mechanical       The press is driven by a rotary motor through a screw, toggle, lever, or other mechanism. 
   Servo (Driven / Control)       The press or machine is servo-controlled or directly driven by a servo motor. 
   Manual       The press is driven or powered by hand, or with manual force that is magnified with screw, lever, or other mechanism. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary technologies. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Frame Type & Orientation:       
   Your choices are...         
   Handheld       Equipment is handheld and can be manipulated by the operator for ease of use and flexible operation. 
   Bench Mounted       Smaller presses or forming machines can be mounted on a bench, stand, or pedestal. Typically bench-mounted presses are used in shop operations or for the preparation of laboratory samples. 
   Open Back (OBI / OBS)        Open back presses have a one-piece frame with an opening at the back between the two gap uprights. This opening is typically slightly more than the left-to-right dimension of the slide flange. Open back inclinable (OBI) gap presses are very common. OBS refers to open back stationary presses. 
   C-Frame / Gap Frame       Gap frame, C-frame, or open-fronted presses have a C-shaped configuration where the front and side of the press are open for easy access. 
   Column (4 Post) / Straight-Side       Four-post or column presses have a frame with posts at the corners. 
   Inclined / Inclinable       Inclined or inclinable presses tilt back or remain tilted to facilitate the removal of punched parts. 
   H-Frame       H-frame presses consist of structural steel shapes (I-beams and angle iron) that are welded or bolted into an H-shape. Additional beams are attached to provide floor mounts and cylinder support across the top. The central beam holds a mounting plate for tooling, vises, or clamps. 
   Sliding Bed / Roll Frame       On sliding-bed presses, the bed or bolster plate slides in-and-out from under the ram for the placement and set up of the workpiece. Roll frame presses have a stationary bed that supports a movable frame which is mounted on rollers. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary frame types or orientations.

Force / Pressure Specifications Pressure is applicable to isostatic presses.
   Capacity / Operating Force:       The operating press load required to cut or form a part or rivet assembly during production. The rated capacity of a press is the ton pressure, which the slide or ram will safely exert at the bottom of the stroke while working within the range of the press. In a mechanical press, the capacity is determined by the bending capacity of the main shaft (crank, toggle, or eccentric shaft). 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Pressure       Pressure is the hydraulic force per unit area exerted by the industrial press upon the piece being worked. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Speed & Stroke Specifications
   Rate:       The number of forming, punching operations, or units produced per time; and usually stated as the number of strokes, hits, cut-outs, cycles or hits per minute that the machine is capable of performing. In a progressive or indexing on complex parts, the total production rate will depend on the number of steps or operations required to fabricate the complete part. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Stations:       The number stations in an indexing, automatic press, such as a turret punch press. The turret holds several different tool sets that rotate into place allowing the punch press to perform a series of operations for the production of complex parts. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Stroke:       Stroke is the ram travel from top dead center (TDC) to bottom dead center (BDC). 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Dimensional Specifications
   Sheet / Stock Thickness:       The sheet or web thickness that can be punched, formed or converted. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Throat:       Throat is the distance from the centerline of the ram to the back frame in a gap frame, C frame, or similar press type. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Special Features
   Automation / Control:       
   Your choices are...         
   Manual (Footswitch / Pendant / Pushbutton)       The press is controlled manually through an operator interface device such as a footswitch, pendant, or push-button controls. 
   Automatic / Indexing       The press or forming machine automatically loads parts into the system and operates without operator intervention. The machine changes or adjusts tooling and other parameters, such as speed or applied load, in a pre-programmed manner.  
   CNC Control       A CNC controller is used to program and perform a sequence of operations on the press. 
   PLC Controller       A PLC controller is used to program and perform a sequence of operations on the press. 
   Windows® / PC Control       The press or forming machine is controlled or programmed through a PC interface. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary automation or control technology. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
