This is a mechanical press. Actually it can called a gearbox powered press.
I used the rack and pinion mechanism for linear movement.
I chose herringbone gears and the total gear ratio of the gearbox is 48. The output shaft rotates at about 60 RPM. In return, the torque becomes 9.6 Nm. So the final press capacity becomes 213 kg /470 lb.

For those values I chose 1.5 mm gear module. And as you can see from the video, they are totaly fine, held it up quite well.
