Engineered Pressure Systems, Inc. Offers Dry-Bag Cold Isostatic Press (CIP) Production Unit
Fast Cycle Times Generate High-production Rates to Produce Large Volumes of Small Parts
Engineered Pressure Systems, Inc. (EPSI), a world leader in custom-engineered high-pressure solutions, offers its Dry-Bag Cold Isostatic Press (CIP) Production Unit. Designed to produce large volumes of small parts, EPSI's Dry-Bag CIP is ideal for the ceramic, carbon, plastics and powder metal industries for near net and net shape parts. EPSI's Dry-Bag is equipped with the capability to change tooling to produce parts of various dimensions on the same press. With a fast cycle time of 20 to 60 seconds and a powder fill diameter of 50-250 mm (2 to 10 in.) the Dry-Bag CIP can be used to manufacture grinding balls, valves, tubes, rods, nozzles and implants. The Dry-Bag CIP can also press small balls with a diameter up to 30mm (1 to 2 in.) in a capacity of 100 parts per minute and may be custom built for larger parts up to a filling diameter of 250mm (10 in.) and a length of 700mm (27.5 in.). EPSI collaborated with the German company, Frey Konstruktion, to produce its Dry-Bag CIP.
EPSI's Dry-Bag CIP features an in-line process that utilizes automatic cycling, powder filling, pressurization, decompression and compact removal, all of which takes place in a continuous operation. Production rates are high and the equipment is fully automated.
