Bole North America introduces two new lines.

Bole North America is introducing two new series of Chinese-built machines. The FE full-electric, high-speed line comes in 110 and 180 m.t. and the servo-hydraulic EK series is available from 90 to 500 m.t. These machines boast a toggle clamp that applies force in the center of the platens rather than in the corners, along with floating tiebars, both of which are said to reduce deformation and wear. They also come with KEBA touchscreen controls.
