We are pleased to offer one (1) refurbished
and modernized Farquar 1000 ton traveling
gantry, round shaft straightening press
previously owned by the Government. The press
is refurbished, modernized, reassembled,
cleaned, painted and tested. Hydraulics and
electrical have been replaced with new
systems. New safety systems have been
incorporated. The press is fully operational
and can be demonstrated on our plant floor.
This press was originally designed for the
Government for straightening cannon barrels.
It includes powered gantry travel, V-block
travel (Right and Left) and Lift/Rotation
Stand travel (Right and Left).
Two (2) column, traveling gantry, shaft straightening
press with elevated operator’s platform, controls and
straightening accessories.
1000 tons
42" wide x 50' long, bed with a fully machined top
plate. The 50' long bed is rated for full tonnage at
full length meaning it is capable of 1000 tons force
exerted on it with the pressure blocks (anvils) spread
out to the end of their travel.
Between Columns
48-1/2" wide distance between uprights allows large
diameter shafts and tubes.
Daylight Opening
53 3/4" between bed and moving platen with ram raised
and without a straightening nose tool attached.
Shut Height
28" between bed and moving platen with ram lowered and
without a ram straightening nose tool attached.
14" with provided ram adapter.

27" bore main piston and ram, single acting hydraulic
cylinder is attached to the guided platen, keeping it
centered even when under load, greatly extending seal
life. Two (2) 4" bore high speed cylinders power the
moving platen down at high speed utilizing a prefill
valve circuit to rapidly fill the main ram while the
high speed rams are powered down. The high speed
circuit enables an operator to lower the ram to work
contact at rapid advance speed. New packings have been
Electric Motors
Main: 30 HP, 1200 rpm, 240\460 volt, 3 ph, 60hz.
Gantry: 5 HP, 1800 rpm 460 volt, 3 ph, 60hz.
Rapid Advance
- 30 ipm.
Adjustable Press - 4 ipm.
- 100 ipm.
The gantry consists of upper and lower castings
connected by two (2) 12"
vertical tie rods and nuts.
The lower gantry cross member incorporates thermal
expansion slots to elongate the tie rods for nut
The bed is a single, welded steel, boxed fabrication
of steel plate consisting of three (3) full length
ribs with top and bottom full length
machined plates throughout its length.
Platen & Guide Rods The press includes a moving platen
guided on two (2) 12"
guide rods.
Bronze bushings stabilize the ram tool
on center and oriented to the work.
This allows the use of a V-nose or
special ram end configuration.
Straightening accessories are included,
designed for round bars or tubes.
Accessories include bolt circle for ram
end, powered bar lift, powered bar
rotation, and powered positioning of
both lift/rotation stands and pressure
block anvils. Descriptions of each
Ram End
Ram adapter tools bolt on to a bolt circle provided on
the guided platen. Note that any adapter length must be
subtracted from daylight opening.

Lift/Rotation Stands
The two (2) rotation stands are powered to
hydraulically lift round bars above the pressure
blocks, then rotate the work for indication and to
position the "high spot" for pressing. The combined
capacity can lift bars up to approximately 15,000 lbs.
and up to approximately 50' in length.
An electric motor drive on one stand rotates textured
drive rollers which in turn rotate the shaft. The
textured surface prevents slippage. The second
rotation stand acts as an idler. A selector switch
controls rotation on/off. All controls are located at
the operator's station.
Each lift/rotation stand uses dual hydraulic cylinders
to power the guided work lift and elevate the workpiece
up and off the pressure blocks to allow rotation.
Independent on-board hydraulic power units drive the
power work lift movements. These self contained power
supplies allow a cleaner work area without the hoses
and plumbing required as from a central source.
Pressure Blocks
Two (2) pressure blocks are provided with V-shaped
anvils. The large bases distribute the press force
across the ribs without bed deformation.
The hardened anvil liners are replaceable. The V-
angle is designed to accommodate round tubes with
surface contact from two sides thereby reducing
contact force on the work to ½ that of a flat anvil
with one point of contact.
The workpieces can be loaded by overhead crane or
fork truck onto the V-blocks.
Pressure Block and The pressure V-blocks and the rotation stands are
Rotation Stand
electric gear motor powered and positioned by
pushbutton control to traverse across the length of the
bed. Both are driven through dual gear racks on each
edge of the bed which prevent yawing and keep them
centered. The bases have flexible wipers on the edges
to minimize dirt from getting imbedded underneath.
Electric power is supplied to pressure blocks and
rotation stands via integrated festoon cable carrier
system. The cables are suspended from the units and
effortlessly carried along when pulled by a moving
Gantry Power
The gantry is powered along the bed of the press by
pushbutton control via an electric motor gear reducer

drive through a dual sided rack and gear system. Dual
racks prevent yawing of gantry during travel to prevent
yaw and help maintain centerline.
Gantry wheels are heavy duty 12" flanged steel
wheels with large roller bearings.
Overhead mounted reservoir and hydraulic power supply
travels with the gantry.
The total travel distance is 40'.
New hydraulics. A Dynex axial piston pump and Parker
ISO valving powers the press. Suction filtration is
A prefill valve controls fast filling and emptying of
the main ram by gravity while the high speed rams are
under power. A decompression valve is included.
Hydraulic lines to 1-1/4" diameter are of flared steel
tubing and hose. Lines over 1-1/4" diameter are of
welded and SAE 4-bolt flanged construction where
Hydraulic System
4815 psi maximum at a full 1000 tons.
Hydraulic Pressure The hydraulic pressure is displayed in both "psi" and
"tons" on a fluid filled, surge resistant gauge at the
operators station.
Operator Controls
Oiltight pushbuttons, illuminated pushbuttons, pilot
lights, and selectors are installed in a pushbutton
panel. Fuses are used on all solenoids. Pushbuttons
and selector switches control all other functions

includes a fused disconnect,
motor starter, transformer,
relays, fuses and wire terminals. The press is wired
for 460 volt, 3-phase power.

Electrical Power
NEMA 12 junction boxes are provided for incoming
electrical power connection. A festoon system routes
power to the moving stands and to the moving gantry.
All incoming wiring including the festoons are new.
Operator’s Platform A non-skid surfaced platform attached to the gantry
allows press operation and traveling
with the gantry. Safety railings are
Safety railings surround the operator’s
platform. Safety chains cover exits at

WARNING: The work area of presses must be guarded on all sides to protect
the operator and/or other personnel. SAVAGE offers two hand
controls, light guards, area guards, safety mats, mesh guards,
Lexan guards and other guarding methods. It is the
responsibility of the user to insure safe operation. You must
either provide enough information to have SAVAGE design and
install guarding or use your in-house Safety Director to approve
safety guarding methods which you install before the press is
operated. The user is also responsible to change guarding
methods if the press use changes.
