www.hydraulicpressessource.co.uk is the place to buy new and used hydraulic presses.
A hydraulic press is a machine tool that can be used to shape metal or other materials in a variety of ways, including bending, embossing and making holes.
It is an increasingly popular choice for engineering workshops because of the many advantages hydraulic technology offers; for example hydraulic presses have adjustable tonnage, so you can save energy consumption by only use the force needed for each job.
Things to consider when choosing hydraulic presses include having the right tonnage to suit the size, thickness and quality of the material you plan to use; and the press speed, which is based on strokes per minute.
Types of hydraulic machine include a brake press for bending metal, a punch press and a forging press. Depending which press you choose, the force can range from five tons right up to 5,000 tons.
Different models offer a range of options and features to meet your manufacturing or repair needs. The straight side hydraulic press is ideal if you need varying degrees of tonnage across the length of the bed, whereas a four column press is better for jobs where little variation is needed.
So if you are buying hydraulic presses, you’ll find all the information you need and a wide range of models at www.hydraulicpressessource.co.uk.
A hydraulic press is a hydraulic mechanism which is used for applying a large lifting or compressive force. It is the hydraulic equivalent of a mechanical lever. Hydraulic presses consist of a cylinder fitted with a sliding piston that exerts force upon a confined liquid, which, in turn, produces a compressive force upon a stationary anvil or base plate. The liquid is forced into the cylinder by a pump. The hydraulic press is now used widely in industries to form metals and for other tasks where a large force is required. They are manufactured in a wide variety of styles and sizes and in capacities ranging from 1 ton or less to 10,000 tons or more. Hydraulic presses are the most commonly-used and efficient form of modern press.
Hydraulic presses depend on the pressure flowing throughout a closed system to be constant. At one end of the system, there is a piston with a small cross-sectional area which is driven by a lever that will increase the force. Small-diameter tubing leads to the other end of the system.
In more recent years, as a result of the development of technologies, and the introduction of CNC press brakes, hydraulic presses have emerged as having several advantages when compared with mechanical and pneumatic presses. Amongst these advantages is the production of high quality manufactured products. Hydraulic presses are highly reliable and in turn result in a much lower level of the risk of injury of staff. They also have a low energy consumption making them an environmentally friendly option for many industries. Further developments in technology have also led to the introduction of new systems of governance and security, which also have many new features.
