These air presses combine the Multi-Power force-multiplying principle with a precision framework to deliver extraordinary thrust forces, power factor and accuracy for both production and laboratory uses. Each unit comes with a Multi-Power cylinder that uses multiple pistons attached to a single shaft. This creates a larger collective surface area for air pressure to act on as the pistons are energized simultaneously via special internal air passages, multiplying the extend thrust. The cylinder and framework result in bench presses that can achieve power factors from 19.6 to 93 times line pressure and deliver tool-saving, low-impact forces from 2,900 pounds to over 5 tons.
The power cylinder has all the standard Multi-Power features such as a hard-anodized aluminum body, hard chrome-plated stainless steel piston rods to ensure reliable operation, a long-length high performance compositehi rod bearing for accuracy and reliability, and pre-lubrication with Magnalube-G® grease for long life. The sturdy framework includes high-strength aluminum frame plates with precision-located keyways and plated steel keys for accurate alignment and rigidity.
Multi-Power presses are lightweight, portable and save space, so they can be used anywhere tremendous strength and precision are essential.
