Gasbarre Press Group has announced the recent installation of a new 750 ton multi-action powder compaction press.
The press is designed to compact complex multi-level parts to be utilised in the automotive and lawn and garden industries. Gasbarre’s machine features three floating lower levels with selective ejection, a floating die platen, and a pneumatic dual upper punch system with top punch hold down.
Each level of the press is independently controlled and is displayed digitally for ease of adjustment and precise control. The stationary platen includes 1-1/2” of motion with adjustable counterforce for powder transfer. The core rod is hydraulically driven for enhanced controllability and increased stripping force. The press includes a servo controlled filler shoe system giving precise function control through a touchscreen operator interface.
Located in DuBois, PA, USA, the Gasbarre Press Group specialises in designing, manufacturing and servicing custom and standard mechanical, hydraulic and isostatic compaction presses and auxiliary systems to meet a wide range of powder compaction needs.
