Chester Hydraulics has worked alongside John Shaw for many years, and similarly supplies an extensive range of Hydraulic Presses for applications as diverse as powder compacting and ceramic forming.

The Company is also particularly renowned for its range of Super Plastic Forming (SPF) presses, a process that allows alloys to undergo extraordinary tensile deformation to produce uniform parts that are up to 50% lighter than conventionally produced components.

Other products within the Chester Hydraulics portfolio include a comprehensive range of Hydraulic Presses from 300 - 1500 tonnes, which have been designed specifically for the Coining (cold setting, planishing or calibration) of steel drop forgings or malleable iron castings.
