Notch & Cutoff Presses

TISHKEN MECHANICAL PRESSES are a versatile, robust option for roll forming and tube mill systems. Notch presses can pierce, notch, emboss or add other engineered features to the product, either before (prenotch) or after (postnotch) the roll former, however the application may require. Cutoff presses can cut formed sections to required lengths in a flying die operation, so the roll forming machine never stops.

Long ServiceAlloy steel crankshaft and heavy duty bearings insure long service.
Single Stroke OperationThe heavy duty air clutch and brake enables high speed single stroke operation.
More Vertical SpaceThe ridged, compact construction requires a minimum footprint and frees up vertical space in the factory, unlike typical mechanical presses.
variable Patterns & LengthsAccompanied with digital control technology, Tishken mechanical presses easily accommodate variable notching patterns and cut lengths.
Easy ChangeoversThe three-way adjustable press base provides ease of setup when product changeovers require switching out notch and cutoff dies.

Press Types


For lighter gauge window or appliance applications (up to 50 tons), the Two-Post press may fit your application.


For larger flying dies and heavier duty applications such as metal construction and heavy transportation (up to 150 tons), a Four-Post style press may provide the versatility and tonnage you need now and in the future.


A specialized press for cutting swept profiles, such as automotive trim. The press can be tilted front to back and left to right, allowing you to cutoff single axis and complex curves. And when the need arises, the Tilt-Type press can be adjusted to operate upright like a traditional mechanical press.

Aftermarket Support

Regardless of which Tishken model or service, contract manufacturers can depend on Formtek for the aftermarket support, whether it is replacement parts, retrofits, or upgrades of existing equipment.
