The model DC C-Frame press is one of the most versatile presses we manufacture. It is designed to accept off-center and center loads as well as progressive die set ups for smaller bed applications. The DC is available in tonnages up to 600 tons and can be used for metalworking, plastics, fabrics and many other materials as well. Virtually any type of press application can be accomplished on a DC style press.

The model DC has an open gap frame and an extremely heavy duty box ram guided by 8 way gibbing. This combination is the most effective way to guide the ram and provide the precision most facilities require.

The ram is powered by a very efficient hydraulic power plant utilizing low pressure (under 3,000 psi) to guarantee long life of the system. This system powers the single machine tool quality cylinder shaft made of turned ground and polished chrome.

The model DC comes with all the standard features listed as well as our 5 year parts warranty and excellent service.
