Russia-based TMP will ship a 14,000-ton hot-forging crank press to Liaoning 518 Internal-Combustion Engine Fittings Co. in Liaoning province, China. This is the second press of this size produced by TMP (the first went to a different customer). The current press, which has already been demonstrated, is designed for the multi-stage forging of crankshafts, front beams and other parts of up to 450 pounds in weight and more than 6 feet in length.
