How Servo Presses Will Launch EJ Ajax into the Next Generation of Metalforming Technology
Servo presses shape metal carefully and intelligently instead of using brute force.
EJ Ajax & Sons of Fridley, Minnesota, has finalized the purchase of two new AIDA Gap Frame Servo Presses scheduled for delivery during the 4th quarter of 2014. These new 220-ton presses will deliver many important new benefits to EJ Ajax customers, including:
