PPM is the series of sturdy, reliable and efficient Faccin hydraulic dishing presses for mass production of dished ends or plate forming in general. The PPM designed and built by Faccin are hydraulic presses suited to dished head crowning, featuring an exclusive design with the top and bottom beam connected by two uprights. The portal frame is connected by two hydraulic protensioned tie-rods that guarantee the maximum resistance and elasticity to the structure in order to resist fatigue. Thanks to the exclusive HPT system utilising two solid forged tie rods (permanently preloaded) to keep the frame connected, a PPM dishing press is able to minimise frame deformation, guaranteeing longer life and reliability.
Faccin can also offer cheaper solutions to manufacture dished heads and tanks. In these lines for dished heads, the frame is connected to the upper beam with keys machined on the structure or just welded to the structure in single monolithic pieces.
The presses are equipped with a set of dies of various radii in order to form different sizes and types of dished ends. The material and the shape of the dies is the result of Faccin’s more than 40 years of experience in manufacturing such machines.
