Our used presses can be divided into mechanical and hydraulic presses. They differ in power and working speed. Hydraulic presses are the "powerhouses" with strong pressing force but slow stroke. Series production is therefore dominated by mechanical presses with short cycle times, e.g. eccentric presses, spindle presses and toggle presses.
Hydraulic presses have a particularly high pressing force but a slower stroke than electromechanical presses. This makes them ideal for one-off production or for the individual machining of very thick and resistant workpieces. However, they are also used for series production. Hydraulic presses are used wherever heavy work has to be done. In the car scrap press, for example, hydraulic pressure is used to turn an entire car into a small package of sheet metal. Well-known manufacturers of hydraulic presses are Schuler, Aida, Nidec-Arisa, Simpac, Millutensil, Fagor Arrasate, AP&T, Andritz Kaiser, Presstec Pressentechnologie, Walter Neff, Ebu Umformtechnik, G+K Umformtechnik, Lasco Umformtechnik, Siempelkamp and Müller Weingarten.
Mechanical presses are mostly used for series production. As a rule, the press pressure is sufficient for the desired applications. Electromechanical presses also have the advantage that they can be switched from series stroke to single stroke. In this way, the press stroke can be doubled in order to process even demanding workpieces.
In metalworking, the most diverse types of used presses are used, which fulfil a wide variety of tasks:
If you are interested in buying a used press for metal processing, you should first consider what the press will be used for and what technical data it has to fulfil. These can be, for example:
Hydraulic presses have significantly more power, but usually work too slowly for series production. Mechanical presses work much faster with cycle times of up to one second and are thus perfectly suited for series production.
Presses are an absolute standard tool in the metal industry and are therefore widespread everywhere. However, presses as new machines are basically very expensive. Thanks to the large supply of presses on the second-hand market, attractive offers can be found. From a technical point of view, presses will still be needed in the future and investing in a "good used one" is worthwhile in any case.
With used hydraulic presses, a high age is usually not critical, as they are not used as intensively (as series presses) and reconditioning is not critical. If components need to be replaced, they are easy to obtain on the spare parts market.
The used presses are offered in "as is" condition. We will be pleased to work out an individual proposal for an overhaul or modernisation to suit your budget.
