Meaty hydraulic pump, Avesta Cyclops Works.
Meaty hydraulic pump, Avesta Cyclops Works.
This is the main hydraulic pump for an 8000 ton hydraulic press SK3688 : Putting the squeeze on, Avesta Cyclops Works.. It is about 700 horsepower (from memory) and is a three throw device that looks like it's carved from the solid and is motor driven through a fluid flywheel (also known as a Foettinger coupling or torque converter). This drives the main rams for applying the squeeze. The back-off rams are driven by smaller, duplicated hydraulic pumps of a lighter/more conventional appearance.
