Servo Press FAQ

What kind of applications are servo presses ideal for?

Servo presses are ideal for applications that require a variable slide velocity at multiple points in the stroke profile, including metal forming and shallow to medium drawing and forming.

What is the difference between a standard mechanical and servo press?

A servo press is driven by a servo motor, as opposed to a standard flywheel, clutch and brake. This provides full energy at any speed, but not full capacity at any stage in the stroke (capacity is best at near bottom center).

Should I use a servo press instead of a hydraulic press?

A servo press offers increased production volume when compared to a hydraulic press. Also, all stroke profiles are fully programmable on a servo press.
