EP16 ULTRA digital Servo-motorized CNC Axial Powder Press for Highest Demands on Productivity and Parts Quality

Uncompromising precision powder press for the production of challenging compacts made of hard metals, technical ceramics, metal powders or other powder material in the withdrawal process.

All axis drives are located in the lower, encapsulated machine housing, which provides them with ideal protection from dust and contamination. The unique direct force transmission from the very rigid lower part of the machine to the upper pressing crosshead guided in the backlash-free frame meets even the highest demands on precision and concentricity along the entire pressing travel.

In its standard version, the press is equipped with high-resolution force measurement, which provides full control at every stage of the pressing cycle, especially when demolding very small or delicate compacts. In addition, the precise force measurement ensures accurate results during force-controlled pressing to constant density and automatic filling height adjustment.

The new CE press safety device meets all criteria defined for good ergonomics and legally required tightness against dust. Easy accessibility for powder and tool change, optional quick-action tool clamping systems and the referencing technology specially developed by DORST ensure quick product changes at all times.

A modern and intuitive visualization system, our tried-and-tested Intelligent Program Generator IPG® and a state-of-the-art open and closed loop control technology leave nothing to be desired when it comes to operation, programming and quick process optimization.
