WHAT IS A C-FRAME PRESS? YOUR GUIDE TO C-FRAME PRESS MACHINES
14/02/2020

Our quality C-frame presses deliver consistent performance – even with the toughest of metal-forming and assembly applications. Typically, a C-frame press is designed to take up less floor space than other metalworking machinery. At the same time, they provide minimal stroke deflection.

A C-frame press is open on three sides so it can easily handle a variety of material sizes and shapes. C-frame hydraulic presses can be fitted with different tooling for bending, punching, cutting or straightening applications.

Just like other hydraulic presses, C-frame presses are extremely versatile and can be used for many applications. These include punching, blanking, coining, straightening, forming, bending, drawing and assembly work. This also means they are suitable for a range of industries.

C-FRAME PRESS DESIGNS There are many different designs that sit under the C-frame press title. However, the general design consists of a steel framework, hydraulic cylinder, and upper and lower tables. These are otherwise known as the slide table and the bolster table respectively. The frame of the press is made from steel S355JR because of its favorable characteristics and strength and makes our hydraulic C-Frame Presses suitable for stamping applications while providing minimal deflection.

We can fit our presses with dies to suit your applications. A die is a press tool that has a specially designed cavity, which is used to shape metal parts from the inserted sheet metal. This process is called stamping. The upper component of the die connects to the press slide, and the lower component to the press bed or the bolster. Stamped parts from C-frame presses are formed using a variety of sheet metal materials such as copper, titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum. The ram then pushes the sheet metal through the die creating the required shape.

Typically, a C-frame press can be operated manually or automatically so they are suitable for short run or volume production.
