EP160/2 Servo-motorized CNC Axial Powder Press for Highest Demands on Productivity and Parts Quality

Highly dynamic axial powder press for the production of challenging compacts made of technical ceramics, metal powders, hard metals or other powder materials using the withdrawal process. Modular design and equipped with an interchangeable tool carrier system for efficient setup and fast product changeover.

The machine design and the large working area make it possible for the press to be equipped with up to three closed-loop controlled filler axes. 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.

Possibility of expanding the standard pressing system individually by adding automation solutions and a wide range of additional functions.
