No matter the marketplace, end-users want products they can trust. Just one poorly pressed part can degrade Original Equipment Manufacture application performance, which negatively impacts a brand’s reputation and bottom line. 

Take your Original Equipment Manufacture application to the next level with hydraulic and mechanical press work from Superior Tube Products. We’re an Iowa-based manufacturing solutions provider that specializes in turnkey production of pressed components for OEMs and their supply chain partners.

Benefits of Press Work 

Also known as a forming press, a machine press is a tool used to deform a workpiece under high pressure. The machine press pushes a plate or die against the workpiece surface and deforms its shape. 

Presses boast unrivaled consistency and flexibility when forming metal. They offer a range of benefits.

  • Full tonnage throughout stroke
  • Adaptability
  • Versatility
  • Accuracy
  • Repeatability

This improves quality and efficiency while lowering costs, results that are passed onto our clients. Here are some common operations we perform.

  • End Flattening
  • Indenting
  • Dimple and mandrel punching of holes and slots
  • Radius forming
  • Radius sweeping

We have a thorough understanding of material characteristics and the best methods of pressing them. While we can press just about any metal type, here are ones with which we often work.

  • Carbon and alloy steel
