Powder compression presses
A process that is essential to the transformation of powder into very high-performance parts, adiabatic compression (or High-Speed Compression, HSC) is an innovative additive technology.
For metals and steels, stainless steels, and titanium, ADIAPRESS ® powder presses are at the core of the SCANPAC ® process developed by MPM around its range of gas atomised powders. After an initial pressing (with our ADIAPACT or HSC servo-driven presses) followed by a pre-sintering operation, ADIAPRESS ® restriking presses complete the densification of the material.
For polymers (particularly semi-crystalline ones), the adiabatic self-heating effect allows the particles to be sintered at the same time as they are compressed. The thermo-mechanical effects concerned also result in an increase in crystallinity, leading to higher Young’s Modulus values and better tribological properties.
ADIAPRESS ® uniaxial compression presses use tools operated via high-performance tool adapters providing many technical and economic advantages:
In addition to powder compression and restriking presses, ADIAPRESS ® offers the necessary peripherals:
