Frequently asked questions:
What is a hydraulic press used for?
This is a machine press that uses hydraulic cylinders to generate force or pressure. It is commonly used in manufacturing to mould, shape, compress, punch into or bend different materials (usually metal).
What is the principal of a hydraulic press?
Based on Pascal’s Principle of fluid mechanics, pressure at a point has infinite direction, and if the pressure is changed in a confined, incompressible liquid, it is then transmitted throughout the fluid.
What is the difference between a hydraulic and a mechanical press?
In a mechanical press machine, a motor creates rotational force, which is converted into pressure; this allows the machine to stamp, crush, punch or mould materials.
In a hydraulic machine, hydraulic cylinders and valves use liquid pressure to create the necessary force and energy required for the press to work.
