What to Consider When Purchasing a Hydraulic Press

August 31, 2020
There are numerous advantages to including a hydraulic press on your assembly line. Whether you are contemplating making your first purchase or you already own a hydraulic press that is starting to show signs of wear and tear, it can be difficult to decide whether or not it simply needs to be serviced or replaced entirely. This decision requires careful consideration. Let’s examine what details should be specified when obtaining a quote on a new model or replacement part, as well as why finding a quick fix at a low price is not always the best deal. Finally, we will look at why it is important to get a complete picture of a hydraulic press manufacturer before making your purchase.

What Should be Included in Your Quote

There is a variety of information that you should look for when you receive a quote, whether it is for a new model or replacement parts. This includes:
·        The press tonnage
·        The specific frame (C-frame, H-frame, roll in table, forklift tire press, gantry straightening, and more)
·        RAM action and speeds
·        Type of operation (hand, power, or control panel operated)
·        Warranty information including what could potentially void the warranty
·        What exactly is included in your purchase (bed, crown, additional rods, etc.)

Why the Lowest Price is Not Always the Best Deal

As with any equipment purchase, you should never let the lowest price dictate which hydraulic press you decide to buy. After all, the price often correlates with the overall quality. If you opt for a cheaper model, there is a good chance that it will suffer the effects of wear and tear more quickly, leaving you with the need to either buy new parts or an entire new piece of equipment. In the long run, it is simply not a good deal.
 Of course, you do not necessarily have to go with the most expensive option either. Simply put, base your decision on getting exactly what you need for your assembly line.
