Schwabe Die Presses

Schwabe Flat Bed Presses have been designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA since 1935. Working closely with our clients, we tailor the machine design around your specific needs and requirements in a consultative approach to achieve the optimal solution whether it be a simple manual press or a fully automatic press.

Schwabe Flat Bed Presses are available in sizes from 30” up to 144” and with cutting forces up to 2,500 tons. These presses can accommodate types of die such as but not excluded to steel rule, male/female, and tile. Press configurations can also include molding, trimming, or heated platens for die cut/heat seal applications.

All Schwabe Flat Bed Presses feature adjustable stroke control and offer convenient quick die change (QDC) capabilities. The design of the Schwabe Flat Bed Presses ensures parallelism between the cutting die and cutting surface which reduces tool wear providing superior finished part production.
