Green Valley Manufacturing has developed a standard line of Pneumatic Die lifters for stamping, and vertical molding presses. GVMI die lifters enable the tool to be elevated above the press bed surface on rollers for easy transfer to/from the press.

The pneumatic operation ensures a clean application without any of the oily mess associated with hydraulic units. The systems are economical and simple to install and operate.

Delivery time: 3-4 weeks.

  • No Oily Mess
  • Economical
  • Low Friction Die Transfers To/From Press
Pneumatic Die Lifter in Press Bed

Even though we advertise these die lifters as standard ¾” and 1” t-slot die lifters, all lifters are cut to length and made to order based on the end user’s specific t-slot dimensions.  Many times a bolster has been machined down (resurfaced) and the t-slot is shallower.  Even on new bolsters we require the t-slot dimensions due to the large variation in standard ANSI t-slot tolerance specifications.  The dimensions needed are shown on the sketch below and on our brochure.  GVMI will use the provided t-slot dimensions to accurately locate the roller elevation for optimum system performance.  If you would like a sample section of our die lifters, please contact us.
