The slide and bed are designed for a deflection of no more than 0.002"/ft of span front to back and left to right, based on the total spans, in combined bending and shear.

Press frame:
The press frame is constructed in the monolithic welded frame style to provide optimum stiffness and guiding capability. The press frame will incorporate the upper crosshead, ribbed end plates and lower bed. The two main front to back window sections are constructed from heavy plate and are profiled with window openings which are machined to accomodate the clear opening of the press and slide. The frame is themally stress relieved prior to final machining.

The slide is fabricated from heavy plates into a deep box section with proper ratio of slide depth to span left to right. The provides improved stiffness and more precise guiding capability. The slide fabrication is thermally stress relieved prior to final machining.

The adjustable 8 point guiding on the slide will be arranged to provide generous length of contact on the slides of the frame to facilitate precision guiding.

The guide wear strips are made from self lubricated material and are the replaceble type. The guiding surfaces mounted to the press frame and manufactured from replaceble, hardened steel plates which are precision ground to a smooth finish.
