C-Frame Floor Press Series

C-frame floor presses are versatile and powerful tools for your manufacturing operations without taking up a large space in your production area. It can be used for a wide range of applications on various materials, allowing a single press to perform several tasks that your operation requires. With their unique open-front design, operators can easily access and handle various workpieces with high precision and control.

What is a C-Frame Floor Press?

A C-frame floor press, or gap frame press, is a type of mechanical or hydraulic press that has a C-shaped frame. The design of its frame makes it easy for an operator to access the die area from three sides, making it suitable for operations that require significant handling or involve large metal sheets. And it has a compact design without sacrificing tonnage capacity, making it suitable for facilities with limited floor space.

C-frame floor hydraulic presses can be used for punching, bending, forming, riveting, pressing, assembly, testing, and component fabrication.

Applications of a C-Frame Floor Press


C-frame hydraulic presses are frequently used in metalworking applications, particularly for punching, bending, stamping, coining, and forming metal sheets. With its accessible die area, it is suitable for producing complex metal parts used in machinery, construction, and consumer products. And, with floor presses, they have enough tonnage capacity to handle a wide range of materials, including aluminum, copper, and steel.

Assembly Operations

The accessible die area of C-frame presses makes them a good choice for the assembly of parts that require significant handling for alignment or positioning during the operation. Specifically, they are used for riveting and pressing components together.

Automotive Industry

The automotive industry relies heavily on C-frame floor hydraulic presses for fabricating various components, like chassis parts, brackets, and engine components. These presses can handle a wide range of materials and thicknesses, which allows manufacturers to use a single press for producing different components with the right configuration.


C-frame presses are used to assemble delicate electronic components like circuit boards, connectors, and housings. It is also used for testing the stresses electronic components can handle by applying controlled forces that simulate real-world conditions.

Advantages of Using C-Frame Floor Presses

Open-Front Design for Easy Access and Versatility

C-frame presses have an open-front design that makes it easy to access the die area and configure the press for various applications. And this design allows operators to work more comfortably and efficiently, which helps reduce their fatigue while improving the safety and productivity of the work environment.

High-Precision and Control for Various Tasks

C-frame presses can deliver the precision and control required for delicate or specific force applications. This can be beneficial even for non-delicate work since it ensures uniform quality for every component produced, which reduces the risk of errors and the need for rework.

Robust Construction for Heavy Duty Operations

The sturdy construction of C-frame presses makes them suitable for demanding operations. They can operate continuously while maintaining the expected standards and their structural integrity to increase overall productivity and reduce downtime.

Flexibility in Handling Different Materials and Processes

C-frame presses can handle various materials, including metals, plastics, and composites. With the right configurations and tools, they can also adapt to different operations, like punching, bending, forming, riveting, and pressing. These capabilities allow manufacturers to use a single machine for multiple applications, reducing the need for specialized equipment and saving on costs.
