SSI Sintered Specialties, headquartered in Janesville, Wisconsin, USA, has invested in a new SACMI 200 ton fully automatic hydraulic CNC press. Equipped with integrated automation for part removal, the MPH 200 press is scheduled for installation into SSI’s growing Technology Center in Janesville in 2022.
The hydraulic CNC press reportedly provides process and productivity improvements compared to traditional mechanical press technologies, enabling SSI to produce Powder Metallurgy components without secondary operations. The press will give customers the opportunity for increased part complexity, including multiple part levels, dual materials and undercut features.
The SACMI MPH 200 CNC press joins SSI’s fleet of PM equipment across its 23,000 m2 headquarters, including thirty-nine presses ranging from 20 to 880 tons and thirty-one high-temperature furnaces. Notable presses already installed at SSI include two Dorst 800 ton CNC presses and a Dorst 250 ton sizing press.
As a manufacturing partner for automotive and industrial markets, SSI is one of the leading international suppliers of sintered metal products. The company manufactures parts and other components, such as stainless steel fittings, sintered metal filters, stainless steel flanges and assemblies, using a variety of Powder Metallurgy process including press and sinter, Metal Injection Moulding and metal Additive Manufacturing.
