The alliance broadens Greenerd’s product capability to 10,000 tons, bed sizes exceeding 240” (6100 mm), and styles ranging from gap frame and straight-side to die-spotting and forging presses. The entire product line will be supported by Greenerd and will remain designed and built to ANSI B-11.2 1995 (R-2000) for the US market. Tianduan also builds presses to meet the CE standard.
Greenerd is the sole representative for sales, marketing, service and installation of Tianduan product in North America. Greenerd will continue to design and build their existing product lines in their Nashua, NH facility, while expanding the variety of press types and tonnages with their Asian partner.
The Greenerd product line now includes Gap Frame Presses to 1,000 tons, Four-Post Presses with beds to 240” wide and 10,000 tons, Straight-Side Presses to 10,000 tons and Die-Spotting Presses with either rolling bolsters or booking rams.
Greenerd Press & Machine Company, Inc. has steadily increased both bed size and tonnage range for its hydraulic presses produced in Nashua, NH. In the past three years, the Company has shipped 4-post presses with 144” x 48” and 150” x 64” bed sizes and multiple presses exceeding 100,000 # in weight. Current Greenerd press designs remain highly reliable in rigorous production environments. Equipped with state-of-the-art controls technology, every Greenerd press is designed and built to ANSI B-11.2 1995 (R-2000).
“We are very excited about the alliance,” said Mr. Tim Dining, President of Greenerd. “It will significantly widen our product scope and size, while allowing us to build on our solid North American customer base. Like Greenerd, Tianduan has extensive engineering expertise, which ideally complements our capabilities to provide the most efficient hydraulic press solutions in the industry,” continued Dining. “They also have a very large manufacturing facility with the capacity to build over 1,200 presses a year, many of them with extensive bed sizes and tonnage ranges.”

All of Tianduan’s fabrication and manufacturing processes are in-house. Presses are designed and built to JIS B 6403 standard and use all German hydraulic components. Tianduan already has presses installed in North America and Europe.
