The Dake F-10 model manual utility hydraulic floor press uses a single-speed hydraulic handpump to lower the ram with up to 10 tons of force to facilitate pressing and forming. The channel iron H-frame accepts large and bulky items, and the hoist adjusts the table height for proper positioning. The workhead is movable to adjustment for off-center pressing. The hydraulic cylinder and pump handle can be positioned on either side of the press to maximize workspace and comfort. The release valve turns to release the hydraulic pressure, initiating ram return after downstroke. Closing the valve at any point during the ram return will halt the ram.
Two interchangeable ram noses are included: a flat nose piece for use in standard pressing operations, and a step-reduced nose piece for supporting, positioning, or fitting into pieces when pressing. The two table plates provide support during pressing. The press has a gauge with a 2-1/2″-dia. display for pressure readings. The base has four 7/16″-dia. holes for floor mounting. Mounting hardware is not included. Hydraulic oil is not included. Press requires some assembly.
|Load capacity||10 tons|
|Max. working height||38 inches|
|Min. working height||0 to 4 inches|
|Ram travel||6 inches|
|Table dimensions||16-3/4 x 3 inches (W x L)|
|Press overall dimensions||60 x 24 x 28 inches (H x W x L)|
H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point of the press; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; L is length, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Hydraulic presses use fluid pressure to transmit a compressive force, which stays constant throughout the length of the ram’s stroke. Metal forming is one common use of a hydraulic press.
Dake Machine Tools manufactures arbor presses, hydraulic presses, drill presses, power hammers, band and cold saws, belt grinders, tube benders, and auto feed systems. The company, founded in 1887, is headquartered in Grand Haven, MI.
