SACMI @ POWDERMET 2016 - BOSTON (USA)

Sacmi to exhibit in Boston, MA, from 5th to 8th of June 2016

[02/05/2016]

Sacmi is an Italian company, world leader in the design, production and supply of industrial technologies and systems, specialized in equipment for the ceramics, beverage & packaging, food processing, inspection systems and metal powder industries. The Sacmi Group is present in 30 countries worldwide through over 80 companies.

Powdermet is the yearly International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, the most important gathering in the USA for the PM community. As usual, the conference is paired with a trade exhibition where Sacmi, at its booth no. 419, will present the latest developments in pressing and firing equipment. The team of Sacmi USA will join the event as well offering fast, efficient and direct service to the local producers from the headquarter in Des Moines, IA, where a group of 40 people is prepared to serve at best a demanding market in terms of after sale service support.

One of the most interesting news brought to the market by Sacmi is the MPH2002, a 200 ton press which is the result of Sacmi’s PM Division hard work - investment, know-how development and partnerships with academia/industry - and aims 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 circuit based on two closed-loop controlled pressure lines fed by variable-speed drives and fixed-displacement pumps 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.

In addition to renewed mechanical and hydraulic systems, the MPH2002 features an Assisted Programming Interface (API) that drastically reduces the press programming and tuning times. The integrated graphical interface automatically generates the best pressing curves based on the geometrical characteristics of the piece and allows operators to crosscheck the results with a user-friendly cycle simulator even before starting the production.
