  • Hi.

    We have the 120 ton DDI Press. but we dont have any information about it.

    we need know

    1.- Characteristics of steel.

    2.- Molds diagrams

    3.- How it work?

    Could you help me with this information?

    I have some picture of the machine and we get to work it, but the cups break.

  • We have a Fielding DDI Press, but we don’t have information about it, I appreciate if somebody can help me with some information about this equipment.

  • Francisco!   Thanks for adding your comment to this page. Please confirm to us that you are referring to the 120 ton DDI Press that was supplied to Alpha Ingeniera, Mexico, around 1980. (Click on the hyperlink on the third item above will take you to the photo supplied to us earlier in 2013). If this is the correct DDI Press then kindly identify what type of information you are seeking?    John B

  • Hi Ruben, I’m so pleased you found our site and thank you for adding this comment. If it is the same machine in the Order Spreadsheet above the machine is a 120 ton Deep Drawing and Ironing Press. It would be helpful to have some photographs of it to confirm this, so if you take some and send them to me at

    that would help us to identify it. We could then add the photographs to this website so that people can add information about the press. Look forward to hearing from you.

  • Recently we found abandoned the machine that your company made for Alpha Ingenieria in México in 1980. The machine is in very good condition, it runs nice. We will appreciate any information about this press and anybody to contact. Now we are trying to sell it, but we do not have idea what was the machine made for.
