Toggle Press

This Toggle or Overcentre press was originally designed for a specific automation project.  The design specification required that 8 toggle presses be mounted, side by side, for the step by step assembly of an automotive component.  Thus, the toggle presses had to be compact and very slim(50mm wide), and easily tooled and adjusted(extruded construction).
