Press Information & Overview

Features that Maximize Die Life and Improve Part Quality AIDA PMX-3000, 300 Ton Progressive Die Press
  • Progressive Link Motion Drive
  • Ball Type Suspension Points
  • Forged Eccentric Shafts
  • Dynamic Balancing of Slide and Upper Die
  • Wide Connection Spacing
  • AIDA's Exclusive Hydraulic Overload Protection
  • Very Low Deflection Tie Rod Frame

The AIDA PMX Series straightside press in capacities ranging from 300 to 1,000 tons capacity is manufactured in our modern 180,000 sq. ft. facility in Dayton, Ohio. The link motion, center drive limits torsional wind up of the massive eccentric shafts and provides more time in the forming zone to maximize material flow and improve part quality.

Adding the link motion to the extremely accurate, low deflection, press structure along with the wide spaced connections and long slide guides provides an unsurpassed environment for precision progressive dies. The PMX will reduce die maintenance and improve the quality of the parts being produced.
