June 29, 2018

Finding the best hydraulic press you possibly can matters; no matter how big or small your business or shop is. From the largest industrial applications to the smallest and most delicate of operations; hydraulic shop presses offer the power and precision to get each job done right. But there is a huge variety of hydraulic presses available today.

So how do you choose the one best suited to your application? Easy, read on to learn more about what to watch for in hydraulic presses and their features and capabilities:

Check the hydraulic press components.

The materials and parts used to build your potential hydraulic press are very important, in fact crucial. If you’re dealing with cheap parts, elaborate designs or unnecessary features, you’re opening up the potential for major problems and delays down the road. Check the quality of the shop press components. They should be fairly simple and straightforward, as well as heavy duty enough to get the job done. Pieces that are likely to break, poorly or over-designed pose potential operational problems and should be taken as red flags.

Place of manufacture.

This point can also be a major source of frustration. Dealing with hydraulic press manufacturers who are located overseas can be incredibly frustrating and time consuming for your business. Not to mention in the event that your shop press breaks down, you’ll be dealing with long wait times for replacement parts and even longer times trying to get good service.
Look at shop presses manufactured in North America and compare them to the overseas counterparts. You’ll quickly be able to discern the quality difference and unparalleled service you’ll find here in North America.

There are a lot of different hydraulic presses designed for different uses. You’ll want to find one that suits your needs the best. Some of the most common standard hydraulic presses include:


Consider a customized hydraulic press.

Many shops perform highly specialized and unique tasks or work on a variety of projects. This leads to the need for a completely customized hydraulic press. If you need a specialized shop press, then take the time to talk to a shop press specialist who can guide you through the customizing process. It is possible to design individual presses to meet exact needs and to also combine several different hydraulic press components in one machine, so give Pressmaster a call!
