Adjustable Angle Heads for Machining Tricky Angles

A worm gear on the back side of the angle head makes adjustments faster and easier, which reduces down time and retooling time that would otherwise slow down efficiency and productivity.
Available in small to large custom sizes, adjustable angle heads from Benz Inc. are engineered for use in general manufacturing and light production operations where the machines need to change angles frequently.

Hole Puncher with Power Reverse Punch Increases Productivity

The electro-hydraulic Hougen-Ogura model 75006PR provides 26.9 tons of punching pressure to punch round holes up to 15/16 in (23.8 mm) diameter and oblong holes up to 11/16 in x 13/16 in (18 mm x 21 mm) in flat bar, H-steel, angle iron and channel material up to 1/2 in (12.7 mm) thick.
The new Hougen-Ogura model 75006PR from Hougen Manufacturing punches holes in steel in 4 seconds and can power reverse the punch back out of hole if needed in harder, more elastic materials that tend to grip the punch after the hole is produced.
