Now available from Brandtjen and Kluge — a new, state-of-the-art, lightweight chase designed specifically for the KLUGE EHE, EHD, WFE and WFD Presses. Designed and developed by KLUGE engineers, this new chase weighs only 14 pounds, as compared to 40 pounds for standard chases, making it easier to lift and insert into the press and reducing the potential for back injury in all operators. The lighter weight also facilitates quicker die changes and protects the dies from damage caused by dropped chases, while the sturdy construction holds up to the heat and pressure of the press.
The new chase is available in two sizes, 14″ x 22″ and 13″ x 19″, to fit all KLUGE
presses. The chase includes two step holes for toggles and is drilled for standard thickness bearer blocks. The 13″ x 19″ chase is drilled for lifting handles, and the 14″ x 22″ chase has a steel insert to protect the side stop screw area.
