SCHMIDT® ManualPress

Hand lever presses from 0.4 kN to 22 kN

Efficientmanufacturing requires appropriate means of production – not always automation. In particular, with small productionruns, manual presses are often the most cost effective solutions.
We are continually developing the range of manual presses so that you can achieve your production targets. The expertise we have gained from our exposure to numerous production applications has been implemented in our new models. Therefore, we can offer a wide range of manual presses to suit all requirements.

Return stroke lock

Return stroke lock
The return stroke lock guarantees reaching the required pressing depth with every stroke.
TDC (Top Dead Center) position.
First locking position: Loose tools can still be aligned.
Second locking position before BDC (Bottom Dead Center). From here you can only continue to BDC.
After reaching BDC (Bottom Dead Center) and completing the stroke the return stroke lock is released. This guarantees a repeatable BDC and thus a constant press depth.
The emergency button releases the locking function in any position.

Fine adjustment

Fine adjustment with micrometer scale serves as stop for the rack and pinion presses
An optional micrometer adjustable stop developed specifically for applications that need fine adjustment of the BDC. The robust and precise design ensures the repeatability of the stop, no matter how many strokes are taken.

Fine adjustment

Fine adjustment with micrometer scale for toggle presses
By loosening the tensioning screw and turning the adjust-ing nut with the same tool, the setting of the BDC can be adjusted infinitely.The adjustment in a range of 1⁄100 of mm is reached rapidly and precisely.
