For over half of a century, Jim Dvorak has been instrumental in the development and design of today’s ironworker. Jim continues to be intuitive, seeking to inform others of the advances he has made that drives the ironworker industry. From his famous patented linkage system that ensures each Uni-Hydro ironworker will out perform all competitors to our oil impregnated punches that prevent slag buildup, Jim has helped to make Uni-Hydro a world leader in the ironworker industry.
When you compare a Uni-Hydro ironworker to a competitor side-by-side you first notice how a competitor uses brute force to punch and shear metal. Using a standard fulcrum with one point for leverage, the competition forces a blade or punch into metal. Look at the size of their motors, stages on pumps and oil capacity and it doesn’t take long to realize all that oil is needed to cool.
By comparison a Uni-Hydro 30 ton ironworker has 70% more load bearing pin surface than some competitors machines up to and including a 150 ton. Not only is the load dispersed for less heat buildup, the resulting durability is extended exponentially. Long after you’ve retired one of our competitor’s machines, long after you’ve reworked, repaired or redesigned one of our competitor’s machines, your Uni-Hydro continues to punch and cut 8 strength’s 65,000 PSI tensile of A36 mild steel
Let’s look at some Uni-Hydro FIRSTs in the ironworker industry:
- Four Way Blade for Shearing
- Manual Punch Aligner for safety
- Simplified Controls
- Our patented linkage for improved control, minimal distortion and durability
- Fork Lift accommodations
- 8 strengths of 65,000 PSI tensile strength mild steel
Dollar for dollar our client’s get more for their money with a Uni-Hydro ironworker.
When a competitor states the A36 steel they cut is 60,000 PSI tensile strength, they are not even in the same ballpark with a 65,000 PSI tensile strength machine. What remains are 65,000 PSI tensile strength ironworkers and comparisons are for accuracy of a cut, integrity of the machine and durability
“Uni-Hydro has the most power - size and weight - for the dollar”,
