Stephen Sales’ Peter Stephen isn’t afraid to take a stand on the technology issue, and understands the quandary faced by processors sourcing a large-tonnage press. He suggests three basic questions as a starting point for processors investigating large press issues:

2. How and where are the split nuts activated?

3. How is the moving platen guided?
