What is the Hydraulic Press
The Hydraulic Press is an invaluable tool which has the capacity to exert great pressure upon materials with minimal surface damage. Commonly used throughout modern industrial processes, jewellers and metal smiths can also take advantage of the compressional force of the hydraulic press to form metal at a smaller scale. First patented in 1795, the press is hardly a new tool, but it still has the power to revolutionise your forming practice. Through the application of traditional metalsmithy principles dynamic forms can be created using the super human strength of the hydraulic press in a fraction of the time – with no hammering required!
