The stem is an element which transfers the power of the main cylinder on the billet like a column. The stem, which must operate without bending and cracking under a high power needs to bear a pressure of up to 120 kg/mm2 depending on the size of the press and the performed application. Therefore, the centering during the operation must be performed properly.
