Flow Control Valve: Pneumatic Press vs Hydraulic Press

For flow control valves and other pneumatic equipment, trust MasterMac 2000.

In many industrial settings, shop presses are used to perform a variety of industrial physical tasks. These presses are capable of applying anywhere between one and thirty tonnes of pressure. They are extremely useful in many and several settings. The pneumatic press and hydraulic press are two of the most common machine tools and are made to accomplish similar, if not the same jobs. While there are hybrid models, these do not seem to be reliable. Getting parts for a hybrid press machine tool can be hard. With a common tool like a pneumatic press, its flow control valve is readily available anywhere.

Pneumatic press

Pneumatic presses are best for precision, high speed, and durability. This type of press is used when a hand-operated manual press cannot produce enough force, or when the volume of work at hand is beyond the capabilities of manual presses. Pneumatic presses are operated by pressurised gas or air. The air is forced into a cylinder, and when pressure is applied, the press moves downward. After the press has completed the task, the air is released through valves and springs to move the pump back up inside the cylinder.

Advantages of pneumatic presses

  • Easy-to-use, low maintenance, and very durable.
  • They’re much faster than hydraulic presses.
  • An operation can be stopped at any time if necessary.
  • They are dependable because the moisture-free and dry air used doesn’t create problems for internal parts.
  • They are less complicated to operate.

Hydraulic presses

The only two big advantages of hydraulic presses are their big power and use on tougher materials. Hydraulic presses use a liquid that moves under pressure. A piston pushes down inside an oil-filled chamber, putting pressure on a baseplate that gets pressed downward. Hydraulic presses are used on materials measuring in tonnage. However, they are far slower than pneumatic presses. The hydraulics also require a high degree of maintenance.
