Machine presses create pressure that is used to bend sheet metal, for the processing of iron, or for the stretching of rods and tubes. The simplest form is the lever press that uses the leverage of a punch to press down on the workpiece. With other presses, the punch is screwed or moved using a crank. Modern single column presses (like the C frame press) are often hydraulically operated. Presses are used for a variety of actions. For punching and fine blanking, they are used to separate flat parts from the workpiece. For deep drawing, the formed work tool is pressed into the material and creates a hollow body.

- Main use: the manufacturing of sheet metal products
- Power, lifting time and precision are particular strong points

Bordering is used to bend the sheet metal along its edges. Other uses include cutting, forging and embossing. Single-stand presses are simple in their composition and therefore also price worthy. Their biggest advantage, in relation to other frames, is the accessibility to the working area. The application of these C framed machines is restricted to medium power.
