Anyang USA Power Hammer and Hydraulic Press Since 1956
Alec Steele installing his new Anyang 165 (watch to the end).
Anyang hammers are self contained pneumatic power hammers. The design is based on the time proved designs of the old European hammers many which are still in use today. With a self contained power hammer, you require no external air supply or high pressure hoses.
The new Anyang HS series (heavy series) features a new heavier frame and ram design where the key and die does not retract into the cylinder making it easy to change dies and use tooling. You can forge heavy stock and immediately switch to thin light stock with no adjustments. With a self contained hammer, you have tremendous forging power (a combination of ram weight, downward air force and velocity) plus precise control.
The Anyang hammers are engineered to run for decades in harsh factory environments. The frames are cast iron, like the old Nazel, Buche, and Massey hammers. Cast iron is more expensive to manufacture compared to fabricated hammers but they are heavier, do not flex over time, and have a lifetime warranty on the frame.
The internal parts are forged steel and precision machined. There are no internal rubber air hoses to deteriorate over time. The drive belts are external to the machine for easy adjustment and away from harmful oil.
The crankshaft has large tapered roller bearings set in a case filled with grease. This design provides for decades of trouble free forging.
All of the hammers come with a base, one set of wide flat dies, and are pre-wired (except for the 165 and larger hammers). They are pretty much plug and play.
I also try to provide the best support possible for any Anyang owner. I carry a full inventory of hammers, dies, and spare parts. I also know the hammers. I have used Anyang power hammers since 2003 and have sold hundreds of the hammers across North America. Before I sell a power hammer, I uncrate it, wire it, lubricate and fully test it. I make sure that every hammer that I sell is operating at peak performance.
