The European industry association EPMA has, this year, chosen Spain as the venue to bring together the main players of the metal powder sector, allowing them to present, discuss and share the latest market trends and the most important technological developments.
The theme chosen by the organisers, “Expanding PM possibilities”, places the emphasis on innovation and the industry’s future.
In keeping with these topics the SACMI stand will be showing customers the solutions developed over these last three years, solutions that have the goal of ensuring a wider, more flexible application range for SACMI MPH presses.
Re-engineering of the new metal powder presses line continues with the 300 – 500 ton range, the first of which will come off the production line next Autumn.
In the meantime the up-to-200-ton press range has already aroused interest from industry operators, mainly thanks to new functions previously patented by Matrix.
While ever-higher precision, maximum product quality, user friendliness and outstanding productivity are now practically the standard in what is a decidedly hi-tech sector, the latest range of SACMI presses boosts such standards with structural solutions aimed at improving the overall process and controlling cost drivers on which relatively little emphasis has so far been placed; moreover, such solutions considerably reduce overall machine dimensions, set-up times, energy consumption and die costs.
It should also be borne in mind that in an industry that demands total reliability and extremely fast after-sales response times, the presence of a partner like Sacmi, with a network of over 70 companies and assistance centres in 24 countries across the globe, constitutes a guarantee of fast, efficient service.
Also this year has seen Sacmi continue its partnership with the University of Trento, a clear demonstration of a corporate culture that focuses on developing new skills to provide customers with all-round know-how: the results of this project will be published in a report titled “Study Of The Effect Of Powder Mixture On The Geometrical Characteristics Of PM Copper Steel Parts By DOE Analysis”
