1. What Is a Hydraulic Shop Press and How Is It Different?

A hydraulic shop press is a machine press that makes use of compressed hydraulic fluid in generating the force behind the press’s power, paired with the force applied by its operator.

Once force is applied onto the plunger, the hydraulic fluid becomes pressurized, and then the ram is extended to apply pressure to whatever material the operator is working with, at a much greater force than a human could produce on their own.  

Hydraulic shop presses are mostly found in industrial manufacturing, metalworking, or fabrication environments and allow for many different kinds of operations in a professional automotive shop. 

While other types of shop presses use electricity or air compressors to power their force, a hydraulic shop press does not require an external power source, making it ideal for a remote workshop or reducing the ongoing overhead costs of a business.  

What Are the Features of a Hydraulic Shop Press? 

Flexible ; A hydraulic shop press will help you with: separating stuck or rusted parts, deep drawing, punching, blanking, molding, clinching, metal forming, and forging — there are an incredible variety of tasks a shop press can assist you with completing. 

Compact ; A hydraulic shop press does not take much floor space compared to all the tasks it can perform, and many models can be used as a benchtop shop press, which can be stored when not in use. 

Power ; You can swing a hammer all day and not recreate the power of a shop press when you need to flatten, bend, or separate pieces of metal — having a hydraulic shop press will save a lot of time and energy for automotive shop staff or any ambitious DIY-er. 

What Specifications of Hydraulic Shop Press Are Most Popular on the Market?

There are a wide variety of powers and sizes of hydraulic shop presses available on the market, but in many cases they can be much more than a person might need — avoid getting far more power than you ever expect to use, to save money and space in your garage.  

A simple 12 ton hydraulic shop press is effective for pressing, stamping, and straightening of components that are difficult to handle.

Apart from the operation of simple tools, a 20 ton shop press can also prove to be very useful in the compression of junk items and the separation of stuck or rusted engine parts or vehicle components. 

The heavier 30 ton hydraulic shop press is very effective at advanced crushing and fabrication tasks when you need to work on custom parts or seriously stuck parts. 

A 50 ton hydraulic shop press can help in the installation of rivets, bearings, U-joints, ball joints, and pulleys, as well as performing all of the other tasks a shop press can handle for you. 

 What Other Tasks Can a Hydraulic Shop Press Perform?

A benchtop hydraulic shop press can help in bending, stamping, straightening of components that you cannot handle on your own, while being easier to move or add to a small workshop. 

Hydraulic floor shop presses are extremely useful in the repair of electric motors in tasks like installation, removal of pressure-fitted components, and the straightening or bending of metals.

Finally, a shop press can also help with other tasks like the manufacturing of electrical and automotive parts and working on heavy-duty metal car parts.  

 What Are the Parts of a Hydraulic Shop Press? 

A high-quality hydraulic shop press has many important parts that add functionality or safety to an otherwise simple and potentially dangerous piece of heavy machinery. 

Shop press safety guards ensure that the operator is protected from being pressed themselves.  

The hydraulic cylinder of the shop press contains the pressurized hydraulic fluid that powers the force of the press.  

The shop press ram and piston channel the hydraulics in the cylinder into the actual motion. 

Hydraulic press frames support the intense workload of the press, and many of them allow the hydraulic system to be switched out and upgraded. 

What Are the Best Hydraulic Shop Press Accessories? 

Attachments for the piston aid in tackling the straightening, bending, and pressing of metal sheets.

A hydraulic hose crimper makes it possible for hydraulic hoses to be assembled properly, which is important in many tasks that your shop press will be used for in a professional automotive shop. 

Hydraulic press plates can also be switched out for different hardness factors or cutting implements that help with die cutting, snipping, or punch holes into metal parts. 

An excellent shop press accessory kit might include a bearing shield, V blocks, arbor plates, press guards, brake tooling kits, safety glasses, and a bearing splitter — many accessories and attachments will be needed for very specific tasks, so you can build up a set over time. 

What Strength of a Hydraulic Press Should I Get for My Workshop?

Some of the most important factors to consider are: available floor space, needed strength of hydraulic power (expressed in tons of pressure), and the size of auto or stock metal that you will be working within your workshop. 

Generally speaking, you can go for a 20 ton or 12 ton model of a hydraulic shop press, as they can perform most of the basic tasks you will want to use your new shop press to do.

If you will be working with larger engines, agricultural or industrial equipment, or extremely thick pieces of metal, you should get the strongest hydraulic shop press that you have space and a budget for. 

8. How Does a Hydraulic Press Multiply the Force?

A hydraulic press uses Pascal’s principle in the application of force — it multiplies force by directing it into a smaller surface area, which is why shop presses work great for both punching and pressing. 

The hydraulic fluid compresses as the operator pumps the handle, which compounds your strength into the ability to do incredible things. 

 What Maintenance Does a Hydraulic Shop Press Require?

  • Periodically checking the hydraulic lines for leaks and ensuring excess oil is wiped off.
  • Checking the level of hydraulic fluid to know whether a quick top-off is required.
  • Always use the recommended type and quantity of fluid for optimal performance
  • Regularly testing and tightening any fittings and bolts, once the shop press is older. 
  • Bleeding air from the hydraulic cylinder can keep it in better condition and resolve most issues. 

 Maintenance: How to Bleed Hydraulic Shop Press? 

It is simple and quick to bleed a hydraulic shop press, and it is recommended to do it at least once a month, or after a long period of inactivity. 

Here is how to bleed the air from the hydraulic cylinder of your shop press:

 

  1. Open the valve and pump ten times. 
  2. Close the valve and raise the ram until it is fully extended. 
  3. While extended, pump ten more times. 
  4. Release the valve again, and lower the ram. 
  5. Repeat this once or twice more to remove all the air from your shop press’s hydraulic cylinder. 

 How Can I Choose the Best Hydraulic Shop Press for Sale or Professional Use?

A hydraulic shop press from PASSCA is meant for hard use in a professional automotive body shop by a mechanic, but the price point means many people choose one for their home garage as well.

High-quality shop presses will cost you more than low-quality shop presses.

Apart from that, the higher the tonnage of the shop press, the higher the cost of the shop press.

Generally, the cost of shop presses will range between 50 to 40,000 US Dollars.

What are the Main Components of a Hydraulic Shop Press?

Different types of hydraulic presses have different components that promote the proper functioning of the shop press.

Here are the main components that you will find in a hydraulic shop press:

Figure 6 Components of shop press

· Set of Hydraulic Cylinders

The hydraulic cylinders help in maintain the pressure that the hydraulic press releases on the load.

· Pistons or Punches

The pistons are responsible for creating the push effect on the hydraulic fluid as well as the load.

· Hydraulic Pipes

The hydraulic pipes will transfer the force or pressure from the hydraulic shop press to other parts of the machine.

They are also the channels through which the hydraulic fluid flows through to the right points of the shop press.

· Hydraulic Fluid

The hydraulic fluid will transfer the force from one side of the hydraulic press and transmit it to the other parts.

· Anvil

The anvil will be in contact with the product and then produce the pressing effect on the load.

What are the Compliance Standards of the Shop Press?

When purchasing the shop press, you must ensure that it is of very high quality by observing the compliance standards.

The main quality compliance standards that the shop press must have include:

  • EN ISO12100:2010
  • EN ISO 16092-3:2018
  • ASME PALD-2010

How Do You Maintain a Hydraulic Shop Press?

Proper maintenance is imperative of the shop press to ensure that it lasts longer to the end of service life.

It involves cleaning and lubricating the parts of the hydraulic press to prevent possible damages on the shop press.

Apart from that, you will ensure that you replace the worn-out and damaged parts of the shop press.

Checking the oil levels within the shop press hydraulic system is also very important.

You must maintain proper oil levels by refilling the oil units up to the right oil levels.

In addition to that, you must replace the oil every other time after the expiry of the lubricant service life.

How Does the Hydraulic Shop Press Work?

To operate a hydraulic shop press, you must have proper knowledge about how the shop press works.

As soon as you apply the force on the peddle the fluid will flow into double-acting cylinders.

It will, then, lead to a repetition of the same process within the double cylinders into another large cylinder.

The back and forth pressing of the fluid will pump the cylinders and create enough pressure within the system.

Eventually, the pressure will be too high to force the anvil, die, or base plate to act on the load.

It will press the load and produce the right crushing or pressing force on the load.

It has a valve that will activate the reversal of pressure when the buildup of pressure is too high.

With this information, certainly, you can choose the best shop press for your business.
