Friction Press

 

a vertical screw press with a friction drive between the spindle of the slide block and an electric motor. It is used for cold and hot closed impression die forging, coining, briquetting, and other operations. Because of their low efficiency and productivity, friction presses have only limited application, primarily in manufacturing items from nonferrous metals in small-lot production.
