Home / Cutting / Traveling Head Die Presses

With these traveling heads, you’re in control.

Hudson’s manual and automatic traveling head presses provide maximum versatility and value. Add automated feeds to get the most out of productivity.

Capable of greater force, larger heads and working area than a swing beam, traveling head presses provide steady cutting power. These presses employ sophisticated systems for more finely controlled cutting force, stroke and head movement. They are ideally suited for both roll and sheet fed applications.

Traveling head presses with up to 80 tons of cutting force are available with effective cutting widths from 19.6” to 120” and platen sizes of 19.6” square to 39.3” square.

Manual dexterity
