  Hydraulic Punch Press



Average of 100 units ready to ship with standard 2-3 day delivery. FMI builds a complete line of standard portable hydraulic punches. Standard flange and web presses range from 30 to 275 tons. Standard railcar "sideframe" presses are rated at 64 tons. All presses contain replaceable bronze guide bushings and replaceable die pockets to maximize service life. An extended overstroke design helps prevent damage caused by bottoming out the ram under high pressure. Franklin uses high quality industry standard tooling in all our presses. Standard tooling shapes are round, square, rectangular, and slotted. Shaped punches and dies are keyed to facilitate punch to die alignment. Flats are used unless other desired configuration is specified when ordering shaped dies.






Note: 1> Provisions for keyed tooling standard 50-ton and up. 2> Special presses quoted upon request.



When considering a Franklin C-Frame Portable Press, FMI strongly urges careful analysis of your specific application. When properly applied, your press will provide years of dependable service. The first step to sizing your new press is to know the press tonnage requirements based on the material you will most often be piercing. The following formula will give a force (in tons) estimate using flat-faced punches/dies.
