This order was for two ‘new type’ presses and equipment.
Two points of note: –
In the third photo, note the electric motor table drive for rotating the table. The fact that these orders were for ‘new type’ presses suggests that this was the first time this feature was adopted. No other photos have come to light showing this feature!
In the last photo, note device for locking the table in the correct position! Various similar devices were introduced in later years to achieve the same result.
