Press Application
As with all manufacturers, each style of Standard Industrial press has a particular strength or attribute that makes it more acceptable for a particular application. To a certain degree all of our styles of presses can perform similar applications, but it is very important to identify what your particular application is before you buy. For example, the model AM straight side presses are typically used by customers who require a varying amount of tonnage across the bed of the press. Progressive die set ups are perfect for straight side presses due to the single cylinder hydra-mechanical drive system that generates full tonnage all the way across the bed. In one die you may have a light forming operation, then next die may require heavy punching and the next may have a guillotine shearing action. With a Standard Industrial straight side press it doesn't matter where the tonnage occurs along the bed as long as the overall tonnage requirement does not exceed the machines overall tonnage. The AM series is also used in virtually every other pressing type application as well.

On the contrary a model AP four column press is designed for center load applications and/or applications that require little variation of tonnage across the bed and ram. Four columns are especially good for long stroke and deep draw applications where the ram must travel a considerable distance to complete an operation and then retract out of the way.

The model DCSS style is a more compact version of the straight side press providing a staggering amount of rigidity due to the enclosed end-frames and compact bed sizes. Even with enclosed end frames the DCSS can allow material flow through with windows in the end frames. The DCSS is excellent for all types of press applications including center and off-center loading.

The model DC C-frame style press is a gap frame press which lends itself to a wide variety of forming applications as well. It is particularly good for applications where the workpiece is larger than the bed and/or the material needs to be fed from the left or right. All four styles of machines and their strengths are explained in more detail in this literature.
