Advanced Machine Design Company has been designing hydraulic presses for over 37 years. Over the years we have designed and built hydraulic press types for operations to include; punching, blanking, stamping, trimming, notching, bending, stretch forming, heat tempering, laminating, deep drawing, forging, extruding, compressing, and nick and breaking. Some of these hydraulic press operations can be performed by various press designs while some functions are only suited to specific press designs.
Just a few examples of presses that we have built include: multi acting deep draw presses for turbine engines components, axle truing presses, missile body extrusion presses, heat tempering presses for turbine engine blades, punch presses for bulldozer track feet, bending presses for truck suspension springs, stamping presses for automotive panels and the list goes on.
AMD hydraulic presses can be supplied with entry and exit automated material handling. This is the value added of purchasing an entire turnkey system from one vendor..
Press function glossary:
Bending Press – bends or straightens material.
Blanking Press – punches a piece of material sized appropriately for the finished product or follow on processing
Compression Molding Press – applies pressure to a material or combination of materials to bond and/or develop desired characteristics and provide shape
Deep Drawing Press – fairly radical process of forming a metal blank into a cup like shape with a punch pushing the material into a die
Extrusion Press – presses material through a die to form the desired shape
Forging Press – shaping hot or cold metal by compressive forces with an open or closed die configuration
Heat Tempering Press – uses heat and pressure to achieve desired material characteristics
Laminating Press – used pressure with or without binders to adhere two or more layers together
Nick and Break Press – notches the material on one side then applies force from the main cylinder in the opposite direction to snap or break material
Notching Press – removes a portion of material by punching a hole or holes on an outside or inside edge
Punch Press – punches a hole or holes into a part
Stamping Press – a single or multiple step process of forming a blank to its final shape
Stretch Forming – places tension on material past its yield point, and then forms it to the final shape with key properties being minimal stress build-up or spring back
Trim Press - removes excess materials from and outside or inside edge or part
