DORST Cross-Pressing Modules – X-pressTechnology for Near Net-Shape Powder Pressing
As far back as in 2005, DORST Technologies equipped the first axial powder press worldwide with
six servo-motorized cross-pressing modules – a development that would enable near net-shape pressing
of entirely new part geometries. Major benefits of cross-pressing include the considerable saving of
material and the specific side-compaction of surfaces as well as the fact that additional machining and
post-processing steps may be reduced respectively eliminated altogether. Now the new generation of
cross-pressing modules X-press has once again accomplished to set the benchmark both for the economic
near net-shape production of compacts with undercuts and cross holes and in the field of cross-pressing.
