In Plate bending machine, the generation of force, its transmission and amplification are achieved using fluid. The liquid system exhibits the characteristics of solid and provides a positive and rigid medium of power transmission and amplification. In a easy application, a smaller piston transfers fluid under high pressure to a cylinder having a comparatively larger piston area, thereby amplifying the force. Thus resulting in easy transmissibility of large amount of energy with unlimited force amplification. It also has a very low inertia effect. The aim of the project is to modify the major component of one cylinder four post hydraulic press so that rigidity and strength is increased by using minimum material. The function of the major components like frame, bottom plate, bed, top box is to absorb forces to provide precise slide guidance and to support the drive system and other auxiliary unit. The structural design of any component depends on the pressing force this determines the rigidity. The machine currently under use does not have high rigidity and needs to be redesigned.
