Horizontal presses for bending and straightening are often characterized by their side-acting C-frame configuration, however, they can also be 4-post or 2-post designs in some instances. The design is driven by the press’s purpose: bending (or straightening) elongated stocks that are easier to load and unload horizontally. This includes I-beams for the railroad industry, alloys for aerospace parts, and chassis for off-road vehicles. Horizontal presses almost always have gib-guided rams to ensure maximum parallelism throughout the cycle despite off-center loading.

When faced with demanding bending and straightening applications, Beckwood’s side-acting bulldozer presses offer unmatched strength and durability. These robust presses are built for the specific tonnage, ram/bed size, speed, and control sophistication your application requires.
