Press Designs






Although Advanced Machine Design has a wide variety of hydraulic presses for many different applications; our hydraulic press designs can be broken down into basic categories to include: two post presses, four post presses, C-frame presses, vertical presses and horizontal hydraulic presses.


The most common press design is the four post hydraulic press. This design is the most versatile as a result of having no size limits, and can be adapted to nearly any process. The four post press design can be configured in a vertical or horizontal position as the process and space available dictate. Precise control technologies ensure that the four post presses are precise and efficient. Operator access is allowed from all four sides of the hydraulic press so it is very well suited for many different applications.


The C-frame press derives its name from the shape of the frame. The primary advantages to the C-frame design are an open work area and increased accessibility. The C-frame press features become even more advantageous when multiple presses are used for progressive operations with automated material handling moving parts from press to press. The C-Frame hydraulic presses, however, are generally limited in maximum tonnage due to the design.


The two post hydraulic press is basically a hybrid of the previous two designs. It has good accessibility of the work are for the operator and maintenance personnel while generally allowing for higher tonnage ratings than the C-frame press.


Hydraulic Press Designs:

  • Four Post Hydraulic Presses
  • C-Frame Presses
  • Two Post Hydraulic Presses
  • Horizontal Configured Presses
