Hill Engineering HAP Series Standard Air Presses

Hill Engineering HAP Series Standard Air Presses

Hill Engineering Pneumatic Air Presses (HAP) have high speed, very fast, very repetitive ram action, which means they are very repeatable for an open loop measuring. This is a very cost-effective way of buying tonnage and die space. The presses are usually lightweight and easy to move from line to line if required and are less costly than hydraulic or mechanical presses. The Hill Engineering application/sales team is trained to help you choose the correct press applications and correct tonnage selections… give us a call to discuss your press questions.
