Long 20” (51cm) pumping handle with rubber grip facilitates pumping. Pressure release control rapidly retracts ram. Analog gauge indicates 0 to 12 tons in 0.4 ton increments. Four 17/32” (0.531”) diameters through holes with 7/8” diameter x ½” deep counterbores in each corner are provided to safely secure the press in position.
The platen, or die platform, is uniquely designed to accept Chemplex® 13, 32, 35, 40 and 45mm evacuable stainless steel die sets. The platen incorporates a series of stepped counterbores that serve to accommodate, self-align, self-center and secure the respective die sizes in position. It is important that the die is placed completely within the confines of a counterbore. The use and applications of another die brand presents the potential possibility of misfit, endangerment and damage to the machine.
