Do you remember what you would do with a spare penny back in the day at the age of 12? If you were like a lot of kids that penny was destined to be squished by the 3:43 train that came through each day. Nothing was more satisfying at that age than picking up that flattened piece of copper off the tracks and seeing the total transformation of the penny – twice its circumference size and a fraction of its thickness.
Well squishing things never gets old, and now that we have outgrown our pennies on railroad tracks there’s a much better and safer way of flattening, bending, straightening, testing, and pressing things. Hydraulic presses have taken the lead when it comes to any application that requires any type of pressure to get the job done.
If you need to flatten a part nothing works better than a hydraulic press. Precise control of the press allows you to flatten with precision and safety.
How about bending? Got a part that needs to be bent? Hydraulic presses are there!
Straightening can save the day if you need to straighten a part that is critical to your operations that has broken down and cannot wait for a replacement. Plate steel straightening or flattening can be a big job until you used Dake’s movable frame presses. Makes the job easy, efficient, and safe.
Pressing with hydraulics is the only way to go for the tough jobs. When you have a hydraulic press, there is no more hammering the part together (we have all done that at one time or another). Pressing part A into part B is the simple, correct, and painless way of doing things.
Testing or as we like to call it “Destructive Testing” is the majority of everyone’s favorite. Over the years, applications for destroying things have come our way from oil filter smashing to credit card machine destruction and many others in-between that you can just imagine, I’m sure. Got an application for destructive testing or a penny to squish? Hydraulic presses are the only way to go.
