To date, the industry uses many powerful hydraulic presses. Many of them were manufactured at a time when there were no efficient hydraulic components and industrial automation systems. As a rule, the mechanical part of such presses is made with a great safety margin and has a sufficient resource margin.
Large presses with an efficient configuration in many cases can be beneficially modernized, although a detailed inspection of their technical condition with a comprehensive calculation of all costs related to modernization or repair of such presses is needed in any case.
It’s more difficult to achieve a positive economic impact in the case of the repair and reconstruction of small presses. Besides, reconstruction of presses with a configuration that doesn’t meet the required tasks likely won’t be successful
