It has been in production for over 40 years and is widely used in custom bullet manufacturing, military prototype work, and research and development labs. The latest version, Mark VI, has several improvements, including a taller cabinet design, more reliable electronic position transducers, and a redesigned steel cabinet with an integral hydraulic tank and forced air cooling. It comes with programmable stroke cycles, pressure sensing ram control with a positive override.
