Porite Taiwan Co Ltd, Miaoli, Taiwan, has further expanded its manufacturing capacity with a fourth TPA1600/3 Powder Metallurgy press from Dorst Technologies GmbH, Kochel am See, Germany. The 16,000 kN hydraulic CNC powder press is now installed and operational at Porite’s Powder Metallurgy production facility.

The TPA1600/3 high-performance press, in a height-reduced design, is reported to enable efficient press forming of thin, single-level plates, with and without surface structure, as well as substrates and wafers for electronic applications, batteries and fuel cell elements.

With an integrated, special die carrier, the press is designed for maximum rigidity and strength. It can be programmed through an intuitive, state-of-the-art visualisation system supported by Dorst’s Intelligent IPG program generator for the powder pressing process.

Porite Taiwan has a range of compacting presses from 0.5 tons to 1600 tons, including advanced CNC hydraulic systems and automatic sizing machines. It has in-house tooling capability, with advanced wire cutting and electric discharge machines used to manufacture high quality tooling. In addition to press and sinter Powder Metallurgy, the company also offers Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) production.

The company’s Powder Metallurgy products are used in a wide range of industries including the automotive sector, consumer electronic products, electrical instruments, industrial products, office equipment, electric home appliances, aerospace and green energy. Established in 1952, Porite Taiwan contributes 45% of the total production of the Porite Group.
