FACTORY INSTALL: If the DPC-V1.0 is added to your cart with a 16, 16+ or 25 Ton Forging Press the controller will be installed on your forging press in the factory.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not currently offer the DPC for the 12 Ton series press. It can be used, but the mount and installation will need to be provided by the customer installing. If there is interest moving forward we will add the 12 Ton Series press to the mounts offered.

DOUBLE SIDED SERIES: Double Sided Press installation/retrofit is available through custom order, contact for information. 

Third-Party/Home Built Press Compatibility: Coal Iron Works is unable to assist with application specific installations. However, this DPC may work on many styles of Hydraulic Press with customer provided mounting and hydraulic hose routing from the existing cylinder to the solenoid valve. The software, controller and peripherals are warrantied on this product, however in a customer applied use case the hydraulic components provided cannot be warrantied on anything but a complete Coal Iron Works hydraulic press.

We love our press, it opened a whole new world of possibilities in making pattern welded steel. We tell anyone who asks about how much our 25ton has done for our work and the phenomenal customer service. Highly recommend it for anyone looking to take their hobby or career to the next level.
