Ross Controls Announces New and Improved Pneumatic Counterbalance

ROSS Controls, Troy MI, introduces a new and improved 1-1/4” pneumatic automatic counterbalance for large mechanical stamping presses.

This new ROSS automatic counterbalance system can be integrated with your existing press controls to set and maintain the correct pressure for each die set, improving parts quality and extending the life of the press. This latest solution for the Metalforming Press Industry meets all ANSI B11.1 requirements and is available in a variety of port threads, voltages and electrical connections.


Properly set counterbalance pressures on each production run will eliminate gear and bearing clearances to reduce force loading, wear and motor loads. Two selectable modes of operation, manual or automatic using 2-way poppet internals, will provide positive shifting even in the most demanding low flow applications. All solenoids and main valve internals are interchangeable and can be serviced from the top for ease of maintenance and maximum flexibility.
