20 ton Industrial Hydraulic Shop Press
This 20 ton Industrial Hydraulic Shop Press powerful unit is suitable for use in a professional environment while remaining compact enough to be used in a home workshop. Its bottle jack generates 20 tonnes of continuous pressing force. Which makes removing and installing bearings, gears, bushings, rods, ball joints, and other components a piece of cake for the company.
It is constructed with a high-strength powder-coated steel H-frame, ensuring maximum durability and long-term performance. The dual ram return tension springs ensure smooth and safe operation. The adjustable working table can be adjusted to seven different height positions. Thus, it accommodates a wide range of pressing tasks and requirements. It comes with two press plates, making the NEW Baumr-AG 20T Hydraulic Shop Press a complete package. That allows you to achieve no-fuss mechanical pressing without outsourcing the work to an external workshop.

General Operating instructions
If necessary, raise the press table to the highest position possible while still allowing the job to be completed on it. Grasp it firmly and remove the table pins from the press to move the table. Then, while holding the press table in the desired position, insert the press pins into the nearest hole in the table's base. Make sure that the pins pass through the frame completely.
Place the workpiece on the press table to parallel it to the table. If necessary, use the workpiece support plates or other suitable objects to properly support the workpiece while assembled. Placed the workpiece so that the area where pressure will be applied lies directly beneath the pin that protrudes from under the jack plate. To shut off the hydraulic jack's valve, rotate it using the slotted end of the handle to turn it clockwise. Rotate it to the right (in a clockwise direction) until it is firm.
To "pump" the hydraulic jack, insert the handle into the handle sleeve on the hydraulic jack and raise and lower the handle. The jack plate should move a fraction of an inch lower with each pump. When applying pressure to a workpiece, keep a close eye on the workpiece. Only a tiny amount of pressure should be applied to the jack plate when it comes into contact.
When the job is finished, use the handle to open the valve on the hydraulic jack (rotate it left / anti-clockwise) and release the pressure. Always open the valve slowly and carefully. Allow enough time for the press table's jack plate to return to its uppermost position before removing the workpiece from it.
An overview of general maintenance
Maintenance and regular inspections ensure that the equipment operates safely and efficiently. Proper care and maintenance ensure the best performance and the most extended service life. Each time the hydraulic jack is used, it should be checked for proper operation and for damage to misalignment/binding of moving parts. Or any other condition that could jeopardise the equipment's safety or performance. Do not operate equipment that is damaged or unsafe. Maintain all surfaces' general cleanliness and dryness to avoid corrosion from occurring.
The hydraulic jack oil should be changed every two years:
The hydraulic jack should be removed from the press. Open the valve, then press down on the jack until it is completely lowered; The rubber plug on the drainage port on the back of the jack should be removed. To empty hydraulic oil from the jack, tilt it and pour it into a suitable container. Ensure there is no oil on the jack body and that it is in an upright position; Fill the jack with ISO 150 or AW-32 hydraulic oil through the oil drain port, using a hand pump type oil dispenser that is appropriate for the job. Replace the drain plug, close the valve, and then "pump" the jack to ensure that the piston rises as expected. The jack has reached its maximum capacity when the oil level begins to overflow from the drain port.
It is recommended that you "bleed" the jack to remove any air that may have accumulated inside the hydraulic system as follows:
To reinstall the hydraulic jack to the press, follow these steps: when you've opened the valve about 12 to 1 complete turn, push down on the piston until it's in the lowest position. Ensure that the oil is circulated throughout the system. And that any air is pushed into the oil reservoir ("pump" the jack at least 20 times). To release any pressurised air, remove the rubber stopper from the drain port on the rear of the jack. Fill the oil reservoir with fresh oil, and then reinstall the drain plug.
