40 Ton Press & Roll Out Table

An improvement in worker safety and ergonomics.

This machine was designed for crimping the heat shield to a converter body for heavy truck exhaust systems. The machine uses a 40-ton hydraulic system to capture the converter and fire up to 13 hydraulic cylinders to crimp the two shells together at the same time. As with about 80% of the machines that Overton makes, this was controlled with an Allen-Bradley PLC & HMI. This C-Frame press also features a hydraulic roll-out table for ease of loading and unloading.

We had a real problem finding a partner that could provide us both the tooling and machine that were needed on this project. Luckily, Overton was able to design and build the machine and tooling so that we had one integrated system that was delivered to the plant, making our jobs easier.
