Model DCSS Straight Side Press
The model DCSS is the pinnacle of the straight side press configuration, there simply is no design that is more heavy duty. Built similarly to the DC style press, the DCSS takes yet another step toward providing the most frame strength available on any press on the market. The DCSS has enclosed end frames in lieu of the gap therefore allowing the least amount of deflection and the most rigidity. The operator can still however have material or die pass through with windows located in the end frames. Built with the same hydraulic system and solid welded construction as the DC, the DCSS gives you another layer of strength for even the most punishing applications. Typically the bed and ram would stay within the frames, but optionally you can order the DCSS with ram and/or bed extensions to extend beyond the frames to give you even more die area.

The DCSS is also available up to 1,000 tons and is perfect for center load and off center loads left to right and /or front to back as well as virtually any other press application. A hydraulic press of this type offers full tonnage throughout the stroke and 3 ram speeds (fast approach, slow press and fast return). This is useful for a variety of work such as forming, punching, drawing plus any other even tonnage application. With exceptional speeds and bed sizes as well long stroke and open height, you will find the base machine to fit most customer requirements.

100% made in the USA with our unmatched 5 year parts warranty plus a lifetime of readily available parts all from your local suppliers. You will never have another "orphaned" machine due to an overseas manufacturer who can’t get you parts or a domestic manufacturer with proprietary parts that forces you to buy everything from them. With Standard Industrial you will always be able to get the part you need for the lifetime of the machine from any number of sources available to you.
