CB-12 Hydraulic 12 Ton Swing Arm Press 

Our larger model, the CB-16 press was so popular that customers asked for a similar, but smaller, machine. The CB-12 is visually identical to the CB-16, but approximately 100 lbs lighter.

The comparatively low price of the CB-12 when compared to other smaller tonnage manual machines in the market makes it an ideal choice for the small shop or manufacturer A full 12 tons of hydraulic power is available with the CB-12 machine at a price that is competitive with much smaller manual machines.

Generating over 12 tons of force, this hydraulic clicker press features a height adjustable head that accommodates different heights and types of dies. Die types include 3mm steel rule dies and 1mm paper dies. Embossing stamps or dies can also be used to impress designs onto work pieces.

Even though the CB-12 has all the features of the larger CB-16, its still a fully industrial machine. The CB-12 leather clicker press features a heavy steel frame designed for industrial use, with a replaceable upper platen, and a polypropylene cutting pad. The cutting pads can be replaced or shaved down once worn.

Dual operation switches ensure both hands are clear during cutting, and the swing arm feature allows the head to move away from busy hands, preventing injuries.

The CB-12 swing arm hydraulic cutting press runs off of commonly available 220v single phase current. Many clicker presses of this type are made to run on 3 phase current, making them impractical for the small shop owner. Yet, the CB-12 hydraulic clicker press is set to run on 220v single phase at no additional charge. Many sellers of these machines charge close to $1000.00 for this upgrade.
