Swing Beam Presses
Why use a Swing Beam Press?
A Swing Beam Press is a highly effective method
of cutting single or multi shapes from material – single
layer or multi layer.
The material and tool are placed under the head of the Swing Beam Press, the operator
then presses two push buttons to bring the cutting head down under force to cut
out the shape. The Swing Beam is then manually moved to one side to allow the
operator to retrieve the cut part and continue with the next cut.
These presses are very versatile and can be used by craft people working at home
with low volume production through to large production facilities with the press
working shifts 24hours per day.
