An eccentric press is used to punch, bend and cut metal workpieces. Through a series of mechanical movements, this powerful piece of machinery contains a range of component parts that are usually housed inside a sturdy iron or steel frame. The latest eccentric presses on the market are made with welded steel plates, which are more durable and hard-wearing. A C-frame eccentric press design is used for small and medium-sized machines, as it ensures maximum accessibility for users. An eccentric machine usually “stamps” metal into the desired shape using an anvil and a hammer.
- Used for the cutting, punching, embossing and bending of workpieces
- Purely mechanical movements
- Mainly used in the steel, motor or turbine manufacturing industries

Unlike the hydraulic alternatives currently available, eccentric presses use a series of mechanical movements, either through a single column or multiple columns. Some machines use a fixed stroke, while others shape metal using a series of adjustable strokes. A large flywheel is driven by an electric motor, which relies on a clutch for movement. A built-in brake is there to provide an emergency shutdown procedure, as well as to aid the pressing process itself.
