100 Ton Capacity Shaft Straightening Press


Shaft Straightening. The press was produced to straighten Gun Barrels for the Navy. The Gun Barrels required being straightened to prepare them for further machining.

The press was supplied with Dial Indicators, V-Blocks, Adjustable Height Anvils, and a Joystick control for controlling both pressure and depth on the Main Ram. This press also had a small Touchscreen that allowed the operator to dial in a depth for the depth control. Depth control was +/- 0.001" of an Inch.


  • Electronic "Joystick" Ram Control: Joystick provides control of ram travel and ram force. Free hand must actuate and hold a palm button for joystick to be activated, per OSHA Regulations. Pushing the joystick forward starts downward movement of the ram. A separate limiting control can be adjusted to pre-set a maximum force available at the ram. Release of either the joystick or the palm button returns the ram to its up limit position.
  • Accessories: The following accessories were included with the straightening press:
    • Traveling anvil with measuring bracket, quantity 2.
    • Two dial indicators, shock proof, calibrated in 0.0005-in. or 0.01-mm
