Sutherland Installs Five Hydraulic Presses
at PGAM--Michigan

Thursday, March 28, 2002
 
Rated individually at 500, 800, 1000, 1500 and 2000 ton capacity, a set of five large hydraulic presses supplied by Sutherland Presses, El Segundo, CA, has been installed at PGAM-Michigan, Auburn Hills. The presses serve as the backbone for major body-in-white manufacturers, inner and outer skins, and for automotive design, prototype and short-run work. Accompanying each press are rolling bolsters with telescopic cushion pin pad protectors, and programmable hydraulic die cushions. Included with the installation is setup of a common press maintenance center that includes all hydraulic cooling lines, filtration systems, pilot pumps and cushion pumps. The installation was turnkey--Sutherland provided foundation preparation, transportation, and line rigging and startup.
