Arbor Press Overview
An arbor press is a small hand operated press. It is typically used to perform smaller jobs, such as staking, riveting, installing, configuring and removing bearings and other press fit work. Punches, inserts, or other tools/dies may be added to the end of the ram depending on the desired task. Arbor presses are usually rated by the maximum load they can apply. Typically common are presses with a leverage of 1–5 tons. This leverage is achieved when a force is applied to the lever arm or wheel.
In the Pearce Shop we have 2 Arbor Presses
- a 1 ton "small press" we use this for pressing bearings, motor pressing, and some removal. we keep in on the pit benches
- the 5 ton arbor press " bug press" We use this press for broaching and for removing stubborn items. ( be careful with the 5 ton press you can break your piece).
