Gib Guided Blanking Press
This 750 ton press is used to form 0.750″ plate used in the construction of tank and hopper rail car wheel structures Because of the extensive forming was a requirement for the press, we designed the press to be both robust and versatile. In addition to being capable of performing forming operations on plate sizes of 7′ x 4′ weighing approximately 650 pounds the press has the added capability to perform heavy blanking operations. To accommodate the high forces and breakthrough conditions encountered when blanking the press has a shock dampening system.
