Because of economical reasons, use of the single or multi-head hydraulic press is finding popularity in recent times in assembly work for automotive parts in particular. As this type of press offers opportunity for large parts to be assembled with ease, their design and performance poses complexity and challenge to press designers in regard to the high precision required by assembly work. This paper deals with the design analysis of a twin head horizontal press using the finite element method. The three-dimensional finite element model, developed for the press, gives quantitative results useful to press designers. Some suggestions are made to improve the stiffness and torsional rigidity of the press.
