Greenerd Delivers Three Hydraulic Presses

Oct. 14, 2009
Automotive, aerospace suppliers order large-capacity
Greenerd Press & Machine Company Inc. reports it has built and delivered hydraulic presses to complete three orders recently, involving machines ranging in capacity from 330-tons to 1,000-tons. All three machines were designed and built at Greenerd’s Nashua, NH, plant for different U.S. manufacturers. First, the group designed and built a 330-ton eight-point, gib-guided press for an automotive and aerospace supplier in the Southeast. The press was designed to iron CV joints. It delivers 0.001-in. accuracy in bed-to-ram concentricity. Earlier, Greenerd built a 1,000-ton, eight-point, gib-guided hydraulic press for a brake-pad manufacturing company in the Southwestern U.S. This high-speed, high-precision coining press is being used in the manufacturing of heavy-duty aftermarket brake pads. Finally, a triple-action draw press was recently shipped to an aerospace manufacturer in the Northeast. The press was designed with a 600-ton capacity main ram / punch; a 300-ton blankholder platen; and 125-ton cushion for drawing sheet metal into aerospace and aeronautical components. “We are very pleased to be seeing increased demand for our large-capacity press solutions,” stated Greenerd president Tim Dining. “Despite the flat economy, our business has been steady in 2009, including these three large press orders and others throughout the course of the year. Thanks to our superb engineering and manufacturing capabilities in our New Hampshire facility, we are well prepared to fulfill custom hydraulic press orders.” Founded in New England in 1883, Greenerd has designed and built thousands of high-quality custom and standard hydraulic presses since 1934. Machines include an extensive line of Hydraulic Presses in all sizes and configurations. A complete line of Arbor Presses is also available. Greenerd Presses are made to withstand the rigors of around-the-clock production and deliver many years of service. Greenerd Presses are available as standard machines or can be designed for custom applications by expert engineers with extensive application experience.
