How to Choose a Press Model

Even if you are a manufacturing veteran, it may be hard to know what style press you need and how much force your application requires. Our engineers are always available to help you, but you can start with this simple chart to show you around our product line

TOGGLE-AIRE® Series
DIRECT-AIRE® Series
HYDRO-AIRE™ Series
INDEX-AIRE™ Series
  • For applications where pressing to a fixed dimension and precision is more important than total force
  • Rated Force is the amount of total force available if needed, not the actual force being used throughout the stroke
  • Ideal for tooling that requires a die set and in automated set ups such as feeders and indexers
  • Best for low force application requiring a long stroke and constant pressure
  • Allows for multiple configurations, unlimited customization, and various ram control options
  • Low cost point of entry and easily upgradeable
  • When you need more force than a standard air press, but want to avoid large, messy hydraulic systems or expensive, complicated servo systems
  • Provides a power stroke at any point in the ram advance due to automatic sequence valving
  • Can be up and running with an air line in minutes, not days or weeks
  • For applications that require high volume output of small to medium sized parts
  • Allows full and semi- autonomous operation 
  • Ability to integrate any TOGGLE-AIRE®, DIRECT-AIRE®, or HYDRO-AIRE™ press model with a multi-station rotary indexer

TOGGLE-AIRE

TOGGLE-AIRE® Series Pneumatic Toggle Presses

Joraco Press Company TOGGLE-AIRE® Series pneumatic toggle presses combine the mechanical advantages of levers and toggles. Forces produced don’t rely on ram impact; rather, it builds as the ram reaches the bottom of the stroke, and effects a shockless, powerful squeeze, regardless of ram speed. Additionally, it is highly efficient- a TOGGLE-AIRE® Series Model 1030 press is 300% more powerful than a comparable cylinder-sized DIRECT-AIRE® Series press, yet only 58% of the air is needed. Most importantly, the stroke is very precise with +/-.001” repeatability.

DIRECT-AIRE

DIRECT-AIRE® Series Pneumatic Presses

Joraco Press Company DIRECT-AIRE® Series presses feature a straight pneumatic cylinder for applications requiring full force over the entire 4.5” stroke. They are suitable for a wide range of manual and semi-automatic operations up to 5 Tons of constant force, in either a C-Frame or H-Frame configuration. Known for their efficiency, economy, and customizability, the DIRECT-AIRE® Series is an air-actuated workhorse for many industries and applications.

Key Operated Shut-off Valve (KO)

The Key Operated Shut-off Valve (KO) Accessory is a key operated shut-off valve for use on all Joraco Press Company models and equipment, as well as on other pneumatic devices that require a key operated shut off.  Although all presses come with our standard “Padlock” supply shut off, this option allows maintenance personnel to make minor adjustments by locking off the air supply with a key device mounted right on the press. The key is retained in the lock when the valve is in the “ON” position and can only be removed in the “OFF” position. It is available in either "Keyed Alike" or "Keyed Differently" versions, and works well with any non-flammable, non-toxic, non-corrosive gas, except oxygen.

Accessory

SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series: Two Hand, Anti-Tie Down Actuator (SS-PB)

The SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series Two Hand, Anti-Tie Down Actuator (SS-PB-18/24) is one in a series of actuators manufactured by Joraco Press Company, for use on all Joraco presses and equipment.  As is the case with all of our actuators, it is a direct replacement for any of the earlier versions of SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series units found on our presses.  The SS-PB retrofits to any Joraco Press Series, regardless of age, and immediately provides the operator with a modern, ergonomically engineered, anti-tie down actuator.  The actuating palm buttons found at each end of the unit must be simultaneously depressed to provide a signal to your press.  When one or both buttons are released the output is terminated.  Both buttons must then be totally released before the unit will allow another signal to the press.  The operator’s hands remain in the “neutral” position when cycling the actuator because the palms of the hand are used to depress the buttons.

Accessory

SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series – Two Hand, Optical Touch – Anti-Tie Down Controller (SS-OT)

The SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series Two Hand, Optical Touch Controllers are the newest members of the SYNCHRO-SIG™ Series of controls. They are direct replacements for earlier models and are designed for use on all Joraco Press Series regardless of age. The SS-OT 18 and SS-OT 24 are ergonomically engineered, “state-of-the-art” controls that reduce operator fatigue because no physical pressure is required for operation. This helps eliminate the hand, wrist, and arm stress associated with mechanical push buttons.

Optical touch “buttons” are located at both ends of the SS -OT and two indicator LEDs are incorporated in each button. One LED lights when the unit is powered and ready for operation. The second lights when the button is actuated. This optical unit has an ambient light immunity of 120,000 lux (direct sunlight) and is highly resistant to both single and mixed EMI and RFI interference sources. It runs on low voltage and the wall mount power supply provided is for the actuator only. No changes are needed to existing valving.

The main enclosure is made of heavy gauge steel and is factory sealed to maintain the integrity of the internal controls. The optical buttons have black polysulfone outer housings and the electronics inside the buttons are fully epoxy encapsulated.
