Sutherland’s servo hydraulic presses are custom-built to deliver outstanding precision and reliable operation to a wide variety of applications. Our combination of active fluid management and advanced servo motors adjusts fluid volume and motor speed to match the workload required, optimizing press performance while greatly reducing energy consumption.
FULLY PROGRAMMABLE MOTION PROFILES: For position, pressure and speeds allow more forming in one stroke and reduce secondary operations. Reduced energy consumption and lower maintenance when compared to conventional hydraulic presses. Unlimited full tonnage at any point in the stroke, unlike servo mechanical presses.
NEW FLUID MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS: Designed with performance and maintenance in mind, our fluid management systems have limited piping, faster flow rates and quicker response times. Our manifolds are equipped with dual safety rated control valves and pressure testing ports for each valve. The I-PRESS® control has a screen that displays a valve action chart in color for ease of maintenance.
I-PRESS® SERVO HYDRAULIC PRESS & AUTOMATION CONTROL: One of many outstanding features is our Multi-Point Job Memory set up screen. This allows users to change pressure, position and speed up to seven times during the downward motion of the slide. This allows more work to be done in one stroke and increases die life with optimized stroke performance.
Sutherland has been a leader in Mechanical Presses for over 70 years. We are constantly pushing the industry forward with innovations in manufacturing, materials, and controls. We offer a full range of Mechanical Presses up to 2500 ton capacities, with gap frames, straight sides, single and double point configurations to serve a wide variety of applications. All of our presses are built to exceed JIS First Class standards, the highest standard in the world for industrial machinery.
High Accuracy Mechanical Straight Side Presses, Eccentric & Crankshaft Drive System.
I-PRESS® & AUTOMATION CONTROLS: All Sutherland mechanical presses come standard with our I-PRESS® & Automation control systems. For functionality and operator safety I-PRESS® is the most fully featured control system available today. I-PRESS® comes complete with Feature Sets and capabilities that are options at additional cost with other control builders. LEARN MORE >
ECCENTRIC PLUNGER GUIDED PRESSES: Our EHW Eccentric Heavy Wide Bed series is the most robust and accurate press available on the market. Double pitman design, with gears on center line drive vertical plunger guides that eliminate side thrust loads to slide.
GEARED CRANKSHAFT DRIVE STRAIGHT SIDE PRESSES: The SP SERIES straight side press line includes single point for small die areas, and double point for larger die areas. The back to front drive system reduces overall heights. Counter rotating main gears and connecting rods direct tonnage towards the center of the die area and reduce side thrust loads.
Sutherland’s hot, warm, and cold forge presses are built for the most intensive applications in metal forming, all the way from shaping massive multi-ton parts to hot heading aerospace bolts. Our wide range of forge presses can incorporate knuckle joint drives, link drives, or hydraulics. This flexibility allows us to help you consistently achieve the perfect press production stroke for your most demanding jobs.
Latest in hot, warm, cored and cold forge technology systems.
I-PRESS® & AUTOMATION CONTROLS: All Sutherland forge presses come standard with our I-PRESS® & Automation control systems. I-PRESS® is the most fully featured and safest control system available today. Thermal bearing temperatures are displayed on main run screen along with full automation controls. Go to our I-PRESS® press controls page.
NEW X-SERIES HOT FORGE PRESS TECHNOLOGY: Our new X-SERIES hot forge presses have many design improvements including X-Angle slide guidance which allows thermal expansion while maintaining tight clearances. Larger eccentric shaft journal surfaces distribute loads, and clutch cooling systems all make for better presses and lower maintenance. Available in 660 to 4400 ton.
HOT & WARM FOR PRESSES FROM 660 TO 4400 TON: We offer presses or complete systems for hot, warm, cored, cold forging as well as vertical hot heading presses. Industries that depend on Sutherland solutions include, aerospace, automotive, hand tools, medical and more. If you would like our e-brochure email: Info@SutherlandPresses.com
