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.

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.
