DTE Series

DTE Series

DTE 900 - 2,800 US Tons


  • Type: Forming presses
  • Press Capacity: 900 - 3,375 US Tons
  • Part Size: large
  • Drive Concept: mechanical
  • Application: cutting, blanking, embossing, forming


The mechanical drive of the DTE series is ideal for flat and semi-flat parts due to its sinusoidal slide motion curve. The presses can be installed as single presses in progressive or transfer mode or as fully automated press lines.


Features & Benefits

  • Proven and continuously optimized technology for reliable production processes.
  • The mechanical drive of the DTE series is ideal for cutting, punching, bending and stamping operations.
  • The solid, low-stress annealed press bodies are FEM-calculated and optimized by “hot-spot analysis” areas subject to higher loads.
  • Presses in tie-rod design are connected to a rigid frame via hydraulically pre-stressed tie-rods.
  • The outside located pressure points, as well as an 8-fold slide guiding system, absorb off-center loads, spare press, and dies to ensure consistent part quality.
  • The automatic centralized lubrication system increases productivity and availability.

Standard Equipment

  • Moving bolster with mobile control panel.
  • Electrical lifting gate with safety glass windows.
  • Electrical slide adjustment, mechanical slide locking, and pneumatic slide counterbalance.
  • Air-cooled, frequency-controlled AC motor.
  • Hydraulic and lubrication unit with progressive distributor.
  • Hydraulic overload protection.
  • Press force monitoring (single and sum force).
  • Vibration isolation with spring dampers.
  • VPN interface for remote maintenance.


  • Additional moving bolster in front-to-back or t-track arrangement.
  • Press force monitoring (signature curve).
  • Different press enclosure concepts for noise reduction.
  • Automatic scrap flaps.
  • Hydraulic die clamps with automatic clamping process.
