Nashua, New Hampshire – An automated 30-ton gantry style hydraulic press features a linear transducer mounted in the press cylinder to achieve precise positioning in a pin application. Minimum depth can be programmed into the control to achieve proper pin depth.

The 25ft long hydraulic press includes automated gantry positioning with optical recognition of the distance between each set of pins to be inserted. The cycle can be initiated in autonomous operation where the gantry moves to each pin location and applies the set tonnage on the pins.
