Mercury Pneumatics offers Hydro-Pneumatic Presses (a low cost alternative to hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical presses). The Mercury series of Hydro-Pneumatic Presses combines the advantages of efficient, low cost pneumatics, to achieve the large output forces associated with hydraulics.
The system operates on normal compressed air pressure of 5 bar, using standard pneumatic controls, thus completely eliminating the use of an expensive hydraulic power pack and associated control equipment.
Typical applications include riveting, blanking, shaft straightening, forming, clamping, stamping, etc., to name a few. Mercury Hydro-Pneumatic Presses are ideal for any application requiring pressing force ranging from 0.4 tonnes to 30 tonnes and are available in 2-column, 4-column, C-frame and compact C-frame.
Some salient features of Mercury Hydro-Pneumatic Presses are: very low air consumption, resulting in energy saving of up to 80% over; equivalent pneumatic cylinders and 50% over equivalent hydraulic systems..
