French engineers draw from a century of experience to provide solutions for the manufacturing challenges of the 21st century.
Accuracy and Reliability
French is ISO-certified and our floor standing hydraulic press models are renowned for their low deflection, delivering uniform molded parts that require less post handling, with fewer rejected parts. French custom hydraulic presses are typically engineered to deliver 0.001″ deflection per linear foot, but we can design systems to meet either tighter or larger deflection targets.
Heavy-duty construction guarantees many years of reliable operation with minimum downtime. Many French hydraulic presses built in the 1940’s and 1950’s still perform reliably today.
Service & Support
Aftermarket Sales provides a complete range of replacement parts for French and TMP hydraulic presses, as well as repair and re-manufacturing services for components. Knowledgeable factory customer service personnel provide expert application advice and fast, responsive support. Service technicians and engineers are available for in-plant maintenance, repairs or upgrades. French offers a three-year limited warranty on new French hydraulic presses, which is three times longer than the industry standard.
