When manufacturing various products, components sometimes require a great amount of compressive force in order to forge, clinch, punch, mould, blank, deep draw, or form materials. As such, machines that provide a great amount of compressive force with ease are very advantageous for manufacturers. While mechanical presses have long served production, newer technology has helped us improve our capabilities and strength while reducing the size of machinery. Within a variety of manufacturer facilities and shops, hydraulic and pneumatic presses are commonly used for performing physical tasks that require large amounts of pressure. With each providing their own unique considerations, understanding the differences between hydraulic & pneumatic press components can help you better make a decision on what type of machinery is best for you.
