Presses are used in manufacturing industries to create, form or assemble a variety of products from different materials. The materials can be shaped, cut or formed from press machinery to create standalone products, or as parts that will be used in assembly processes. The majority of press applications in manufacturing are used in assembly settings.
Safe and Easy Factory Assembly
Industrial assembly with presses is an easy, safe, and often more economical alternative to methods like soldering, welding, or manual assembly. The right press assembly process and the right press can also help to make a stronger and more durable connection that is resistant to stress cracks and temperature changes. Powered presses, as opposed to manual presses or arbor presses, increase speed, productivity and control, and can eliminate the stress put on workers conducting manual assembly. Powered presses also accomplish high force jobs that cannot be performed by hand or with a manual press and come in varying sizes and force limits to perform a wide range of joining applications for assembly.
Joining Applications for Industrial Assembly
Presses can be used for both assembly and disassembly when needed. If there is a process where two items need to be removed with a certain level of force, a press can dislodge an item cleanly, with adequate force and tooling. Many industries rely on press disassembly for maintenance, reconfiguration or other purposes, like the automotive industry for used parts, recycling plants, refurbish sites, life sciences and more. Often, the same presses used to assemble a similar part can be set up with different tooling that will perform a disassembly function and separate two pieces or parts that had been joined.
End Product or Pre-Assembly Applications
Presses can also play a large role in creating the pieces that will need to be assembled / joined together.
Industrial Applications with Factory Presses
Finding the right press for your industrial operation means finding the right balance of force, speed, and overall design.
