Hydraulic Metal Forging KIT 240 V single phase 16 or 25 Tons Force

AU$4 100.00
In stock
Product Details

Complete DIY Metal Forging Hydraulic Press KIT for 240 Volt Single Phase,
Ideal for a Home or Garage installation that has no 3 phase electricity.

All the Hydraulic Parts you will need to build your own Hydraulic Metal Forging Press
Kit Includes Electric Motor, Automatic Hi-Lo Pump,
Hi Lo means that the 2 stage pump automatically changes from
High Flow Low pressure to Low Flow High Pressure.

25 Ton Big bore Cylinder, Oil Tank, Oil Filter, Lever actuated Direction Control Valve,
High and Low-Pressure Hoses, DIY high pressure reusable Hose Fittings,
and even a Stainless Steel Pressure Gauge

This 240 volt, 3.7Kw metal forge hardware package.
The 3.7 kW motor & hi-lo pump are the maximum power you can run on 240 volts Single Phase.
This setup gives you the maximum speed & tonnage we can provide for 240 volts.
# We can also supply 3 phase motor for the same cost if required.

Just about all the hydraulic hardware, you will need to build your own metal forge.
It can produce a maximum of 25 tonnes of force, with a good speed (see video of actual unit).
You will need to assemble the parts and design and build your own frame.

The electric motor needs to be wired and you must use a licensed electrician.
Please note, you will need to fit an electric cord into the motor.
There is a wiring diagram under the lid, but by law, an electrician is supposed to fit this.
It is very important to test the rotation before fitting the pump.
Whilst standing behind the motor, please ensure the fan turns clockwise.
Running the pump in the wrong direction will blow its seals and oil will leak out.

You must also have a 20 amp fused / circuit to run this unit. We also offer a 3kW motor/pump option, 15 amp max, which will run on standard 240v mains power however due to the smaller pump displacement you will either have to sacrifice overall tonnage force (smaller 4" bore cylinder) or speed (smaller pump running larger 5" bore cylinder).

Please note The pressure relief on the directional flow control valve is factory set to 2200 psi.
Simply adjust with an Allen key up to 3000 psi for maximum tonnage. The power beyond sleeve in photo is not supplied nor required for this build.

What's included

3.7Kw electric motor
Bell housing, shaft couplers & a cast iron hydraulic Hi Lo pump
Lever Actuated Hydraulic Directional Flow Control Valve
5" bore, 8" or 12" stroke ram, produces 25 tonnes of force at 3000 psi
45 Liter oil tank, 50 x 30 x 26 cm (Length/ Width/ Height)

Screw on 25 micron Oil Return Filter and Aluminium Filter head

Hydraulic adapters and fittings to fit Tank, Pump, Valve, Cylinder, Filter
8 Meters of 5000 psi 3/8 two hydraulic Hose with Field fit DIY Hose fittings.
2 meters of 1/2" 4000psi hose for return to filter with Field fit DIY Hose fittings.
3 Meters of 150 PSI Oil Suction Discharge Hose with Super Clamps
Pressure gauge with hard mount adapters now included (not in photo)

Please note; electric plug and cables are not supplied with these units as per Australian law.
There is a wiring diagram under the power terminal lid. See photos
An Electrician is required by law to connect up and check ROTATION;
Clockwise rotation when looking at the motor rear fan blade

For electric spool positioner options additional wiring and switches are required (not supplied) and allows open/closed signal input only (not proportional/PWV)

What you require;
The electrical connection of the motor, and an on/off switch
Nuts & bolts.
Press Frame etc

Using a hydraulic cylinder with a 5" bore high flow will produce a down speed of
25 mm per second and an up speed of 30 mm per second.
in Low flow, it will produce a down speed of 4 mm per second with 25 tons of force
and an up speed of 5 mm per second

The cycle time as well as the forces generated will vary depending on the
bore & stroke of the hydraulic ram you are using. Please contact us with your requirements.
A few examples using 5" bore rams with a 12" stroke = 19-sec cycle (full down and up)
With an 18" stroke = 18 seconds down and 15 seconds up.
A 4" bore ram will be faster.
The pump comes with a 1" suction tail & has a 1/2" BSPT pressure port.
The pump is the highest possible LPM (flow) available for a 10 Hp motor.
It is a hi-lo pump, which means it pumps High Flow at low Pressures,
this is used when the cylinder is extending or retracting,
but once your forge hits the job to start the deformation process,
it automatically drops to Low Flow High-Pressure cycle to enable
very high pressing forces with good control.
Again tonnage is dictated by the bore of your chosen ram.
As an indication, you will produce the following tonnages;
4" bore ram = 16 tonnes,
5" bore ram = 25 tonnes.
The larger the bore, the higher the tonnage.
However, the larger bore needs more oil volume, resulting in slower up-down speeds.
This is a professional quality unit, made to perform & last.
We also stock Australian-made hydraulic rams,

1 spool monoblock valves to operate the up-down function for your press.
Also available are Oil tanks as well as fittings & either swaged-to-length hydraulic hoses or
hoses with reusable fittings to allow all hoses to be made by yourself on-site with minimal tools.

Please call us for additional parts or larger / smaller units. We can supply 5Hp up to 20hp setups. (07) 5563 1982
