The Hydraulic Press is a machine press using a hydraulic cylinder to generate a compressive force. It uses the hydraulic equivalent of a mechanical lever. It is a mechanical machine used for lifting or compressing large items. The force is generated through the use of hydraulics to increase the power of a standard mechanical level. This type of machine is typically found in a manufacturing environment. It is a compression device that makes use of an exerted force placed upon a fluid, to create a resulting force according to Pascal's Law. The Hydraulic Press is very efficient and made for industrial uses.
