Upgrades & Rebuilds

Freeman Schwabe® offers several options to improve customers’ profit through increased production and energy savings, reduced safety hazards, enhanced press reliability and part quality with lower scrap rates. We will convert, upgrade (modernization) or rebuild your press in our Cincinnati, Ohio factory and any work performed comes equipped with a warranty.

Some examples of the types of services we offer and perform on your presses are:


Press conversions can include transforming a manual press to adding automation such as PLC/HMI controls, material feed system, heated platens or converting to servo-hydraulic power systems.


Press upgrade offerings can be hardware/software updates, OSHA safety compliance, high-speed hydraulic packages, a fresh coat of paint and OEM press calibration.


Press rebuild services can restore your Freeman Schwabe® press to its original condition. This can be a cost-effective alternative to buying a new press.
