What is a Toggle Press?

At Joraco Press Company, we are pleased to offer the highest quality precision pneumatic presses, rotary indexing machines, and fabrication tooling for a wide range of applications. Our toggle presses offer superior accuracy and reliability, so you can be sure that your manufacturing and assembly processes are running as smoothly and efficiently as possible without the mechanical complications common with hydraulic and power presses.


A toggle press is an industrial tool used to perform a variety of applications that need high force in a small space. Rather than using electrical power, a toggle press relies upon pneumatic power to exert force through a series of strategically placed levers.TA1030 Toggle Joint 3D

The mechanism consists of toggle lever connected to a secondary toggle, which manipulates the compressing piston by pressing it downward into flat material fastened to the press table. The use of toggles significantly increases the pressure placed on the material by multiplying the force. As such, toggle presses often exceed the available force of other common bending methods such as hammer striking. Incorporating pneumatics into the system enables an exponential increase in available force, significantly increasing pressure while reducing manual strain on operators.
