Travelling Head Presses

Why use a Travelling Head Press?
A Travelling Head Press is the next step up from a Swing Beam Press for cutting single or multi shapes from material – single or multi layer from rolls or sheets.

The material and tool are placed under the head of the Travelling Head Press, the operator then presses two push buttons to bring the cutting head down under force to cut out the shape.The Travelling Head automatically moves to the side to allow the operator to reposition the tool for the next cut.

These presses are very versatile and can be used for low or high production capacity.
