The Mini Press will be supplied with main dies and samples. The producer will be in charge of the start up, training and service.

1000 Ton R&D press

1000 ton (970 T) front loading press, cutting edge technology. The press is designed to extrude from 0.1 mm/sec ram speed to 40 mm/sec with high precision. The press ram and container are mounted on a X-guide that runs on the press tie rods maintaining the center of press power accurately. 

The control of this press is very versatile:

  • Very low speed / high power for hard alloy
  • Normal speed / high power standard alloy
  • High speed / high power super speed novel alloys

All controls via software.

Press total power 1000 Amp 400 V
Press inner pressure is 1.100 MPa
Tooling, pumps and container are specially designed to handle this high pressure.

Used laboratory press

50 T press made by LOIRE, France and designed by eng. Fernand Gachy (partner of Qualiteam International) just after he had finished his studies at the Technical University in Nantes. The press served for many years at Degussa in Germany producing silver and gold wire until it was sold by Qualiteam International to a consortium of TNO and a private company in The Netherlands for the development of new alloys. Fernand Gachy passed away in 2013, 76 years old.


The same LOIRE press in 2005, still going strong..
