PI60/4 Multi-Purpose Isostatic Powder Press for the Production of Shafts, Axes, Tubes, Bushings, Pistons, Insulators, Nozzles, Spark Plug Bodies, Spheres etc.

Our fully automatic isostatic PI60/4 powder press is the second-generation version of our successful PI60/2, suited to the production of a vast number of structural and functional components made of technical ceramics, heavy metals or hard metals up to an isostatic pressing pressure of 2000 bar.

This press, precisely controlled in its main axes, closing cylinders and pressure intensifiers, is characterized by practical details as well as a high level of usability and reliability.

The pressing techniques of 'Ejection' and 'Extraction from above' are a standard feature while other pressing techniques depending on the tool are available as an option.

The pressed parts are usually removed by a robot or, if preferred by the customer, by simpler pneumatic axis systems.

For increasing its output by adding a pressing module of an identical type, the PI60 4 press equipped with a robot can be expanded to a flexible production cell, called TWIN CELL.
