Still Going Strong

Technological advancements have driven widespread changes in manufacturing. However, one machine continues to stand the test of time: the arbor press. The machine’s design is the same today as it was when Dake began manufacturing arbor presses in the 1940s—when the machines were a common sight on U.S. aircraft carriers. 

In simple terms, an arbor press is an instrument used to convert a small force into a big one. And boy do they. Despite their diminutive size, a single leverage arbor press can apply a force of up to 3 tons. A compound leverage press can apply a force of up to 15 tons. That’s why arbor presses make getting things done a whole lot easier. Even today, their simple design outperforms much higher-tech machinery, and they remain a go-to tool everywhere from large manufacturers to small workshops.
