2,000-Ton Hydraulic Press Forges a Three-Ton Steel Ring

The hot steel looks a lot like an angry donut at the end.

There is something incredibly satisfying about watching red, hot magma-looking steel getting relentlessly crushed into a new shape, and we believe that there aren't many people out there who would disagree with us on that. Hydraulic Press Channel is a goldmine for those who love to see all sorts of smashing business: Their hydraulic press can take on anything from burning hot steel to a bunch of food, and it is incredibly cool to watch stuff give away under pressure.

In this video, you'll be seeing a 2000-ton hydraulic press crushing three tons of red hot steel. The aim? To form a giant, steel ring that looks a lot like an angry donut. In the description box below, it is stated that the steel ring will be machined into huge gear in the coming videos of the channel.

If you're still not excited about the video, this comment by the channel will definitely do the job: "This press makes our machines look like a JOKE! You could probably push the 40 ton one under that and crush it into press pancake." Enjoy!
