Our Presses

 
In addition to more than sixteen hydraulic presses of various sizes, Continental Forge also can offer the unique capabilities of 5,000- and 6,000-ton units and a companion 500-ton side cylinder for exceptional parts needs. With the aid of creative modifications and superior parts design, these presses at Continental Forge today are producing parts which others might produce only with much larger or more complex equipment. For parts with wide cross-sectional areas, such as those used in aerospace and commercial areas, big press capabilities are required to meet big needs. With their state of the art facilities and equipment, Continental Forge can deliver that capability. Increasingly, manufacturers are looking to Continental Forge to satisfy the entire spectrum of their aluminum forging needs. Continental Forge: Heavy Duty Press
