Gasbarre Powder Compaction Solutions, part of Gasbarre Products Inc., located in DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, has manufactured and commissioned a dry-bag Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP) unit to a leading German manufacturer of end-mills, drills, tool holders and wear-resistant components for the metalworking industry.

The company states that the press was designed with the ability to form components of up to 450 mm in length and 3000 bar (43,500 psi) pressure for the pressing of tungsten carbide powder into rod, sleeve, and bar preforms. 

It reportedly uses an advanced forming system that converts hydraulic primary pressure to high-pressure forming fluid with an integrated one-shot pressure intensifier for pressure curve control and optimum cycle rate. An HMI/PLC/Motion Control package was used for parameter access, control and monitoring for all machine aspects.   

While only recently formed as one of three core business units of Gasbarre as part of a rebranding initiative in January 2019, Gasbarre Powder Compaction Solutions has been designing, manufacturing, and servicing a full line of powder compaction equipment and services for over 40 years. Its product offering includes mechanical, hydraulic and electric uniaxial presses, as well as dry-bag isostatic presses.
