Wide Bed Traveling Gantry Straightening Press
For Pushing /Pulling Wheels, Sheaves, Gears, etc., Onto / Off of Shafts, Rolls, Axles, and Armatures
Our wide bed series traveling gantry straightening presses features three moving axes (X, Y, Z) for straightening large plates, castings, weldments, and burned shapes.
These sturdy machines are rigid enough to maintain full tonnage across the entire bed. The three axes of movement provide full ram coverage of the bed, eliminating the need to frequently reposition heavy workpieces.
