Die Spotting Press

Die Spotting, Mold Spotting, & Die Tryout

The Savage Hydraulic Die Spotting Press is available with different options for different budgets. Our basic Die Spotting Press includes a shuttle bed for crane loading dies/molds. It also permits work to be performed on the bottom half of the tool safely outside of the press. For greater tool access, these die tryout presses are available with a 90o or 180o swing-out platen to separate the die/mold halves. The 90o swing-out platen press allows simultaneous repairs of mold halves at two sides of the press. The 180o swing-out platen press inverts the upper half of the tool and presents the tool halves side by side, safely outside of the press. Once examined, the press reassembles the tool for accurate, controlled die spotting.
