Gasbarre recently manufactured and commissioned dry-bag cold isostatic press to a leading German manufacturer of end mills, drills, tool holders and wear resistant components for the metalworking industry. The press was designed with the ability to form components of up to 450 mm in length and 3000 bar (43,500 psi)pressure (Monostatic 400 Series III) for the pressing of tungsten carbide powder into rod, sleeve, and bar preforms.  Gasbarre used an advanced forming system that converts hydraulic primary pressure to high pressure forming fluid with an integrated one-shot pressure intensifier for pressure curve control and optimum cycle rate. An HMI/PLC/Motion Control package was used for parameter access, control and monitoring or all machine aspects.   While capacity need driven by growth in the automotive,aerospace and energy sectors made the acquisition necessary, the manufacturer chose Gasbarre because of their experience.  Gasbarre has provided support of the Simac line of presses and continues to produce quality isostatic equipment with continuous enhancements, which provided the confidence necessary to stay with Gasbarre for their seventh Gasbarre/Simac press.
