Held in San Antonio, Texas from 17th to 20th June 2018, POWDERMET is the largest annual North American gathering devoted exclusively to powder metallurgy, particulate materials, and metal additive manufacturing. The large associated marketplace featured over 100 booths from all over the world and in this scenario Sacmi had the possibility to present once again its latest developments in pressing and firing equipment.
Sacmi, the Italian leading manufacturer of machines and complete plants across many different industrial fields and today one of the prominent technology suppliers for the PM industry, was present at the tradeshow together with the team of Sacmi USA.
Besides successfully joining the event, in fact, Sacmi provides fast, efficient and direct service to the local producers from the headquarter in Des Moines, IA, where group of 40 people is prepared to serve at best a demanding market in terms of after sales service support.
At the show Sacmi introduced the new MPH080 and MPH120 fully hydraulic CNC presses, based on the extremely successful MPH200. The newly developed presses show the promising result of Sacmi’s PM Division hard work - investment, know-how development and partnerships with academia/industry - and aim to set a new standard for PM hydraulic pressing technology.
The meticulous attention Sacmi always puts into energy saving and environmental sustainability has been taken a step further thanks to an innovative hydraulic power unit that provides lower energy consumption with reductions in the order of 15 - 40 % depending on production conditions.
Moreover, the new hydraulic circuit design offers potential speed gains of up to 50% without losing energy efficiency.
As all presses in Sacmi’s range, the MPH080 and MPH120 are equipped with an Assisted Programming Interface (API), which drastically reduces the press programming and tuning times.
