    Hyd press help

    Thanks JHCC...I will do that. Thank you Neil....I didn’t word my original post very well in many ways. I wasn’t trying to say that the press in its current set up is a 50 ton press...I was making the point that it started its life as a 50 ton Carolina press (per the placard on the frame). I wasn’t really sure what capacity is, as it sits now after having its current cylinder and hyd power pak added. I’m working on educating myself on hydraulics so as to not come across quite so ignorant on the subject. Thanks again to all who’ve chimed in with assistance and words of wisdom.

    Roger that Neil...appreciate your input.
  5. Can anyone help identify the brand of this cylinder. I can find no placard on it, only some stamps (see pics). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I don’t THINK I KNOW what the pump specs are...I absolutely know, as I simply took the numbers off the placard on pump (V10 1P7P 1C20) and found that pump online to get the ACTUAL specs for that pump, which are provided in my original post. I don’t think me asking questions like asking if someone can help me identify the specific Prince model I have on this press should “frighten you”!! SURELY you can provide me some helpful information based on what I’ve provided instead of simply attempting to belittle me and insult my intelligence. Like I said earlier, I won’t deny I’ve got plenty to learn

    Wow...not gonna deny that I’ve got plenty to learn. Sorry on the terminology...4.5 bore, 2.5 rod. You’ve really got a way with words, not much of a teaching spirit in ya

    No spec plate on cylinder...it is stamped T12607?? The ram is 2.5” & cylinder is 4.5”. I’ve attached the specs from the pump in original post?? I don’t see anything placard that indicates whether it’s single or double. What will changing to the 5hp motor (maybe larger if possible??..I’ve got a 40 amp circuit that will be dedicated for the press) do to performance (speed, tonnage, etc) Is the valve I have (pic in orig post), one that will stay in a certain position when you let off or will it return automatically?

    Thanks Frosty, more than willing to do any of the leg work that I need to. Need help identifying the cylinder (brand?). What will changing to the 5hp motor (maybe larger if possible??..I’ve got a 40 amp circuit that will be dedicated for the press) do to performance. Do I need to stick to a 1750 rpm motor when pairing with this specific pump (specs for pump detailed in one of the pics in original post)? Is the valve I have (pic in orig post), one that will stay in a certain position when you let off or will it return automatically? If this was dropped off at your shop...how would you use it to

    Hey guys was going to pick your brain about a press I purchased recently from a machine shop that closed down. It started its life as a 50 ton Carolina press....that’s had modifications. It has a separate hydraulic power pack made up of a 10hp Baldor 3ph motor & paired w/ a Eaton pump. I will attach some pics of the parts...could use some help w/ the ID of the the various parts & their capacities!! One issue is the motor...I don’t have 3 phase and am not really interested in getting a converter...so was considering replacing motor w/ a 5 hp single phase. I’m not sure on the brand/spec

    steel type?

    Wanting to see if someone can help identify this steel from a lab analysis. I came into a very large forklift tine, cut a sample and took it to a local lab that gave me the results listed below. It doesn't seem to fall into any ONE specific steel type as far as I can tell....but i'm FAR from being knowledgeable on the subject. Any help would be great.. Here's the specs...C=.41, Si=.29, Mn=.56, P=.01, S=.01, Ni=.04, Cr=1.0, Mo=.15, Cu=.08, Sn=.00, Al=.02, Mg=.00, V=.00
