Phoenix Hydraulic Creates Custom Press for Auto Manufacturer

The world's leading lift truck manufacturer contracted Phoenix Hydraulic Presses to customize a standard hydraulic H Frame Roll Bed Press. The machine will press rims into lift truck tires. An upper ram plate, bolster, safety guards and larger power unit were all added.

Because the weight and size of the truck tires, both a 30" x 30" bolster plate to support the tires and an upper ram plate to push the rims into the tires was added. Both plates were specially designed to be removable. The larger power unit increases the ram speeds resulting in improved production rates.

The press also features extensive safety additions including an electrically interlocked front lift guard with fixed guards on the sides and back of the press. The lift guard must be closed to operate the press.

Standard components of the press include a bed that rolls out for easy loading and unloading and a work head that glides easily from side to side for full off center load capacity. An adjustable hand winch changes the bed height and a self-locking winch mechanism prevents the bed from dropping when the handle is released.

The motor is a 460 volt three phase motor controlled by a remote hand control with a rocker style switch. The remote includes a 10 foot cord enabling the press operator to view work from all sides with fingertip control of the ram movement.
