Air Over Oil Presses

Air Hydraulics has 2 lines and a total of 10 unique models of hydropneumatic air over oil presses. These presses run on a shop air supply and are a great alternative to Hydraulic Presses due to their high force capacities, lower upfront investment costs and minimal maintenance costs.

Air over oil presses, commonly referred to as hydropneumatic presses, are a great fit when you are looking for the reliability of an air press but need the increased force typically offered in hydraulic presses

Our hydropneumatic and air over oil presses use air as an energy efficient power source to intensify a hydraulic oil that powers motion without the use of pumps or motors.

Some of the benefits of an air over oil press versus a full hydraulic press include:

  • Reduced initial purchase cost
  • Reduced long-term maintenance cost
  • Reduced factory noise
  • Improved safety due to the lack of high voltage power
  • Ability to deliver force equivalent to many fully hydraulic factory presses
  • Base models simply require a factory supplied airline to operate

Our high performance air over oil presses are the result of over 75 years of precision design and proven engineering. Everything we’ve learned over the years has been put into building the best air over oil presses for your factory floor.

Benefits of Air over Oil versus Hydraulic Presses

Power

Our air over oil presses are powered by compressed air rather than a high voltage power source.

Quieter

Hydraulic presses produce constant noise and heat, whereas air over oil presses produce no heat and emit noise only during the press cycle, resulting in a much

Safety

Hydraulic presses use high voltage and electric motors which add increased risk to your team during operation and require more technical expertise in.

Maintenance

Air over oil presses have fewer moving parts, are less complex, less expensive and require minimal maintenance to operate over their lifetime, providing you with a huge ROI.
