Figure 2 Hydraulic shop press

  1. Pneumatic Shop Press

It is also called the air hydraulic press.

Basically, this is a modified version of the hydraulic shop press.

It has air systems or air pumps that help the hydraulic fluid to exert the needed pressure or force.

Besides, it depends on tubes and valves to exert controlled action.

Apart from that, you can decide on the amount of press that the shop press can produce depending on the application.

You can customize the shop press to produce different tonnage of force depending on your requirements.

Which Factors Should You Consider When Choosing a Shop Press?

Well, it is important to have the knowledge about the shop press you need before you go shopping.

You can have a rough idea about the type of shop press that you need by looking at the following features.

· Tonnage of the Shop Press

Here, the application and amount of force you need will determine the tonnage of the press that you will purchase.

The tonnage of the shop press will vary according to the final application of the shop press.

· Intended Type of Usage

The final application of the shop press will also have an influence on the type of purchase you make.

· Type of Press Selection

You must also consider the press selection type that you will have on your shop press.

You can choose between air/hydraulic press or electric press among other types of presses.

· Pressing Stroke, Working Speed, Length and Duration

These dimensions will affect the efficiency of the shop press according to the application requirements.

The better the above dimensions, the higher the quality and thus an increase in price.

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.

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 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.
