The New KS2 APEX SERIES, Center Drive with Left to Right Crankshafts. The KS2 mechanical press metal forming solution incorporates a new and improved crown and drive design. The opening in the top center / apex has been made larger for ease of drive installation and future maintenance. With the main drive gear box in the center, the left to right crankshaft journals push the connecting rods further apart. This has advantages with large die area and off-center load conditions. We have been installing center drive straight sides since 1985, and all presses exceed JIS 1st class standards. The I-PRESS® AB PLUS press and automation controller comes standard on all Sutherland presses.
