Cold Forging Press | Straightside | 400 - 1200 Metric Tons Capacity

Photo of the AIDA CFT Cold Forging Transfer PressCombining Cold Forging Processing with Transfer TechnologyThe necessity for conserving resources and energy is presently being emphasized the world over. As a result, cold forging processing is replacing cutting processing faster than ever. Along with this tendency, there are intensified requirements for suitable presses for high-speed and concentrated production with high precision. In addition, there are increasing demands for transfer processing to produce products which cannot be produced by a single-punch process. Responding to these demands, AIDA, with rich experiences and technical achievements in the cold forging filed, has developed and produced the CFT Cold Forging Transfer Press Series.
