Designed to Fit YOUR Application

Drawing Press Designs are available with:

  • Conventional slide (punch) above the blank holder
  • Punch within the blank holder consisting of an inner punch slide with an outer down-acting blank holder and lower cushion.
  • Up-acting lower punch with a down-acting blank holder (and/or cushion).

Electro-hydraulic controls are available to make any or all of the press functions programmable. The Savage setup controller with a touchscreen operator interface is user-friendly.
At the touch of a finger, the operator can change press set-ups from those stored in memory, making set-up faster and consistently repeatable from job to job. Simply enter a job number assigned to a die and the press is ready to run. Optimum pre-established setpoints are automatically entered for slide and cushion tonnage, speeds, positions, and dwell time values.
Savage does not stock catalog sizes. Each press is engineered to your specifications to perform your job at maximum efficiency.
