Description

Description

This 4-post shop press is super heavy-duty — up to 50 Ton Hydraulic Press — with options for 20 Ton and 30 Ton as well.  Use this one for applications where perpendicularity and/or parallelism are important.  Because the upper press reaction beam is infinitely adjustable, it can fit many unique jobs.  Adjust the 4 posts independently to make the plate as flat as you have the ability to measure it.

This press will handle the large jobs.  Not just the high force requirements, but also for large parts.  The 4 posts can be as long or short as needed, which gives the press a very large working height.  Move the top plate up or down to suit the need.  While posts shown in the image are on the shorter side, they come in many lengths.

The Anvil here is just one of many possibilities.  Make others with the features you need to accomplish your job(s), because the anvil can switch out with other styles.

More About The Design Features

More About The Design Features

The 4-post 20 ton – 50 ton shop press is especially heavy duty with a design to help secure position for perpendicularity and/or parallelism during pressing operations.  Each leg is infinitely adjustable to meet a wide variety of size requirements while exactly locating the upper press beam.  This gives infinite options for whatever working height you need.

Incidentally, if you find you need more height later, simply change the 4 posts for longer ones.  For small action, set the press on a stand if needed for a different working height.

Design options include hydraulic press capacities of 20 tons, 30 tons, and up to a full 50 tons.  A max of 100,000 lbs force!  This is not a wimpy Chinese mail order tool.  This design will take the full hydraulic press force without complaining.

The anvil attaches directly to the hydraulic jack giving direct force application.  Also, any number of anvil variations or attachments can easily substitute and meet the job or project requirement you have.

Press construction requires steel cutting and drilling.
Load Capacity is up to 50 Tons.*
