Lauffer Pressen, a producer of hydraulic presses and automated press systems based in Horb, Germany, will introduce its new generation of powder compacting presses during Ceramitec 2018, Munich, Germany, April 10-13. The new Lauffer C-Line is said to combine the latest developments in innovative press technology with Lauffer’s proven experience as a producer of systems for the Powder Metallurgy market.

Developed to help enable efficient and cost-effective PM part production, the company’s new generation of machines is powered by servo-hydraulic drives and offers a reduced footprint and system height compared to previous models. The new machines have also been designed to improve operator comfort through the use of ergonomic design and optimised user controls, as well as reduced noise levels.

Lauffer also offers dedicated PM software and a user-friendly machine interface to allow for a wide range of options, including a simulation function with which the machine operator can check virtually if a PM part is fit to press or not.

During Ceramitec, Lauffer will exhibit the first system in the new line – an 80 ton compacting press. As well as servo-hydraulic drives and a reduced footprint, the new machine is said to incorporate a proportionally controlled oil-cooling system, complete housing with additional dirt barriers, sealed-off oil-tanks to prevent air exposure, a fixed adapter system, an integrated powder filling system and optional reference clamping system.
