The BTM Air Toggle Press has an innovative toggle linkage which utilizes a unique rectangular vane piston as one of the levers used to multiply the force of incoming air pressure. The simple yet reliable mechanism allows the press to be thin and compact while multiplying force from 25 to 1000 times incoming air pressure. The mechanism produces high output forces from common shop air (80psi/5.5 bar).
- Air Pressure at port "B" holds the piston and ram in the retracted position.
- Air pressure at port "A" moves the integrated piston against the toggle linkage extending the ram.
- Maximum force is reached as the linkage toggles to center.
