TPA15/4 Mechanical axial powder press

Developed and refined systematically over decades and adapted consistently to ever new standards of modern-day industrial production, our TPA15/4 is a state-of-the-art press of highest reliability and performance. A wide range of accessories and equipment variants enables the customer to configure even a mechanical press according to his individual requirements.

Our 4th generation TPA15/4 is compatible with all mechanical DORST tool die sets of the previous models and the earlier machine types TPA4, TPA6 and TPA12.

When it comes to machine setup and continuous process monitoring, the operator will be assisted by our latest network-capable DORST Press and Quality Controller (PQC) with graphical visualization system. In addition to programming and visualizing the pressing curves, the PQC offers a large range of other functions relating to tool protection, automatic filling height adjustment and production statistics.

In its standard version, our TPA15/4 is equipped with a servo-motorized filler in conjunction with a latest-generation PQC, the dynamically controlled filler axis being integrated seamlessly into the mechanical constrained pressing sequence. The servo-motorized filler combines the advantages of a freely programmable axis with the benefits of a mechanical press, making adjusting the filler characteristic and optimizing process times as easy as can be, even with a mechanical press. The servo-motorized filler is very wear-resistant and contributes significantly to increasing the performance of the press.
