What is Straight Side Press?

A straight side press is a type of mechanical press used in manufacturing and metalworking industries for forming, shaping, and cutting sheet metal or other materials. It is named “straight side” due to its vertical uprights or columns that provide support to the press bed and ram in a straight, vertical line. The press bed is the flat surface where the material to be worked on is placed, and the ram is the moving part that applies force to the material to shape or cut it.

Straight side presses are known for their high precision, accuracy, and stability, making them suitable for a wide range of applications such as stamping, blanking, piercing, bending, embossing, and more. They are capable of exerting high tonnage forces, making them ideal for heavy-duty operations. Straight side presses can be operated manually, mechanically, hydraulically, or using a combination of these methods depending on the design and configuration of the press.

Straight side presses come in various sizes and capacities, ranging from small benchtop models to large, high-tonnage presses used in automotive, aerospace, and other heavy industries. They are typically controlled by computer numerical control (CNC) systems or other automation technologies for precise and repeatable operations. Straight side presses are widely used in manufacturing and fabrication processes to produce a wide range of products across different industries.
