Anticlastic—
features opposing curvatures of the same surface (picture
a saddle: the ends curve upward while the sides curve downward).
Synclastic—
features a matching curvature of a surface in all directions
(picture a bowl: all sides curve upward and inward in the same manner).
Urethane—
the most useful item used in the press. This incompressible
material pushes metal into every detail of your die. Bonny Doon’s urethane
is specially formulated for forming applications with increased cut resistance
and memory retention. Properly used, a urethane can last 10 years or more.
Durometer—
measures the hardness of the urethane. 95d is hardest, 80d is
softer.
Intensifiers—
small pieces of 80d urethane placed over areas of the die to
build up the form. These are typically sandwiched between a urethane and
the metal.
Pusher—
solid steel cylinder that forces a punch or other tool into a
contained urethane to achieve a desired form.
Spacer—
takes up excess space in the work area to reduce the travel
distance required for the platens to begin applying pressure to the
workpiece.

Triple seals, integrated into the
ram, ensure smooth, wiggle-free
operation and long wear.
Oil bypass system provides
positive protection of internal
parts by preventing overextension
of ram.
In addition to the baked
enamel finish, all exposed surfaces
are rust-protected with a special
phosphor treatment.
Hot-forged steel base provides
greater strength and resiliency
than porous cast-iron bases.
One-piece welded construction.
The body housing is welded
to base and top, providing
the greatest possible strength
and uniform operation. There
are no threads to wear and leak.
