Main Cylinders • Lake Park Tool & Machine, Inc.

MainCylindersAlthough some presses have
inserted main cylinders that
are separate from the rear or
cylinder platen, the more
common design is to have the
platen and main cylinder
welded together. If you have
the misfortune to have a main
cylinder fail, whichever type you require, Lake Park will
provide one that meets or exceeds the original

A main cylinder failure usually creates a major crisis: your
press will be out of commission until the cylinder is
temporarily repaired or replaced. Unless you have some
warning of the impending failure, you can be caught with an
unanticipated and lengthy period of nonproductive time.
Lake Park has a reputation for responding to such
emergencies quickly.
