Phoenix designs and builds a large straightening press with precision control
A California manufacturer of materials for renewable energy looked to Phoenix Hydraulic Press to design a hydraulic press with highly precise control. The press needed to straighten large diameter stainless steel pipe within a tolerance of .005. Phoenix designed and built the 55 ton straightening press with a 144” table. The hydraulics feature a two speed high output electric pump, four way valve (advance, hold and return) and a 2 ½ “diameter pressure gauge.
The frame has a 55 ton capacity at 10,000 PSI. The stroke of the platen is 12”, daylight is 25”, reach is 15”and height is 110”. The table is 144’ left to right, and 21” front to back. The control is a remote hand control with a rocker style switch that has a momentary advance, spring center hold, and momentary retract with a 10’cord. The remote control enables the operator to view work from all sides with fingertip control of cylinder piston control.
