The significant difference between the traditional multi-station presses and the transfer presses is that solitary forming stations can be attuned individually. Another major difference is the outwardly situated blanking slide for the incorporated manufacture of blanks. Multi-station presses may be one-slide or many-slide in plan and are obtainable in different capacities ranging from 2.500 kN to 60.000 kN. Component transfer is offered on demand by automatic or electric rail transport systems. It also features an externally located blanking slide for integrated production of blanks.
