Osterwalder AG, Lyss, Switzerland and Sacmi Imola S.C., Imola, Italy, have announced they are joining forces in the area of large Powder Metallurgy press technology


Osterwalder’s Hydraulic Powder Press UPP

has pressing forces between 2500 – 10000 kN 

The new partners have finalised an agreement that will allow the companies to combine their strengths and know-how for PM presses with pressing forces higher than 2000 kN. Osterwalder AG and Sacmi Imola S.C. will continue to offer their press series to the market: Osterwalder AG its well-proven UPP and KPP series and Sacmi Imola S.C. its new development, the MPH series.

Sacmi Imola S.C. will focus on the manufacturing of equipment, applying their highly efficient and industrialised manufacturing know how, whereas Osterwalder AG will focus on the development, engineering, sales and service of the UPP and KPP series through its global network.

This cooperation allows Sacmi Imola S.C. to utilize the existing manufacturing capacities even more efficiently. Osterwalder AG ‘s plant in Lyss will use this opportunity to further sharpen the focus on servo-electric driven compaction technology for hard metal and special material applications, as well as on equipment for iron powder applications with pressing forces of up to 2000 kN.

Among the first new developments will be re-designed versions of Osterwalder AG’s large press line-up. The launch dates for the KPP generation II and UPP generation II will be published in the near future.



Osterwalder won an EPMA Award for their servo-electric powder compacting press CA-SP 160 Electric. See here for more information.
