Press Trimming

Press Trim Services tailored to your product's exact requirements.


Components are produced on a sprue with risers around the edge and sometimes flash. Press Trim operations are designed to remove the component and any excess material quickly and accurately from the sprue, reducing the need for costly labour associated with manual trimming.

There is more of a need for a press trim operation on rounded castings due to the shape and form of the rises.

There is a lesser need for a press trim operation on straight sharp edges as you tend to get a clean edge from a simple hand de-gate operation.

    More Information


    The press trim tool is in two parts and each half is bolted on either the upper or lower platen on one of our Hare presses. The trim press has typically 15 to 20 tons of closing pressure. The press raises and lowers as the worker actuates the press guard. The die casting part fits perfectly in the trim die bottom, the trim die top half closes on the part and uses a cutting edge to cut the excess metal (flash) away from the part.
