What Are Mechanical Presses?

Mechanical powder presses condense powders in the powder metallurgy process. Any machine that exerts pressure without the use of hydraulics to shape, form or cut materials, compress solids or extract liquids is considered a mechanical press. This equipment is used for manufacturing metal parts, sheet metal working, technical ceramics production and other metal forging applications.

How Does a Mechanical Press Work?

Mechanical presses use rotational force from the motor and convert it to a translational force vector that aids in pressing. They can be single-, double- or triple-acting, depending on how many rams are present.

To operate, the machine’s electric motor creates power and transports it to the flywheel. After being initiated by the clutch and brake, the motor drives a gear train that channels the energy to the crankshaft, which moves the press slide vertically. Then, the motor reinstates power to the flywheel, beginning the process again. 

Types of Mechanical Presses We Offer

If you’re looking to optimize your powder metallurgy processes, Gasbarre has numerous types of mechanical presses you can choose from based on your individualized needs. All of our mechanical powder presses have their own specialized components, features and functions — because no two metalworking jobs are exactly the same.
