What type of tooling can I use in a flat bed press?
Preco flat bed presses are designed to accept a range of flat tooling including standard steel rule dies, chem etched tooling as well as male/female tooling. Tooling is available from a wide range of suppliers.
Can a flat bed press through cut and kiss-cut?
Preco flat bed presses are capable of through cutting or kiss-cutting to a liner, and this can be done with the same die. Our exclusive micrometer stop allows us to control the depth of cut in increments of 0.001".
How much tonnage do I need?
Tonnage is determined by the number of linear inches in the tool. As a rule of thumb, we use 350 pounds of force per linear inch. Materials and ejection foams will influence this and we've seen typical ranges of 200 to 500 pounds of force. It's always best to test this at Preco ahead of the flat bed press selection.
