MCL series

MCL series


  • Type: Stamping presses
  • Press capacity: 2,000-8,000 kN
  • Part size: medium
  • Drive concept: Scotch Yoke
  • Application: blanking, stamping, drawing



Compact presses for a wide range of medium sized parts. Due to its drive-related slide kinematics, the MCL series is particularly suitable for drawn parts.

Features and benefits

  • Flexible installation options as a single press in progres-sive or transfer mode or as fully automated press line
  • The compact design requires little floor space and no foundation at presses below 4,000 kN press capacity
  • The very solid, low-stress annealed press bodies are FEM-calculated and optimized by so-called “hot-spot analysis” in areas which are subject to higher loads
  • Motor, clutch/brake unit, lubrication system and controls are of German origin and guarantee a long service life and maximum dynamics
  • The slide guiding system ensures a high level of tilting  rigidity and reduces the cutting impact during the cut through when it comes to the processing of higher-strength materials

Standard equipment

  • Electrical lifting gate with safety glass windows
  • Electrical slide adjustment, mechanical slide locking, pneumatic slide counterbalance
  • Air-cooled, frequency-controlled AC motor
  • Hydraulic unit and lubrication unit with progressive distributor
  • Hydraulic overload protection
  • Press force monitoring (single and sum force)
  • Vibration isolation with spring dampers
  • VPN interface for remote maintenance


  • Press force monitoring (signature curve)
  • Different press enclosure concepts for noise reduction
  • Die change systems with retractable die clamping plate or tandem die change carts
  • Manual scrap flaps
  • Hydraulic die clamps with automatic clamping process
