Press Components


Cunningham Mechanical Design offers retrofit and upgraded components and systems for any existing extrusion press. Our designs include the latest in technology applied to existing extrusion press. Our designs include the latest in technology applied to existing machinery to increase productivity and minimize downtime.

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
CMD replacement components are designed and engineered utilizing finite element analysis (FEA). Loading stresses, fatigue rates, and deflection are addressed in the engineering determinations to design and manufacture replacement components. CMD designs replacement components to perform for greater that one million cycles, or by analysis standards, infinite life.

CMD specializes in replacing original cast steel press and machine components with engineered steel fabrications and/or forgings.

Additional engineering services include retrofit and upgrade designs for replacement components and systems, custom engineering, and design optimization. CMD engineers can perform analysis tasks for any project.
