Powder Press OPP 2000

Osterwalder AG

The OPP 2000 is the first electric multi-level powder press on the market, which achieves a pressing force of 2'000 kN. It is based on a completely newly developed platform and is aligned to the requirements of the next generation. Helbling Technik was an integral part of the development team and jointly responsible for implementing new and innovative concepts.

Whether a purely electrically powered powder press with a pressing force of 2'000 kN was technically feasible was doubted just a few years ago. In collaboration with Helbling, Osterwalder has developed the OPP 2000 and thus finally answered the question. This machine redefines all previous benchmarks for powder press machines: The machine achieves an operational efficiency increase that is unique. Energy consumption has been reduced by 80 % and the machine availability is 98 %. With the innovative OPP 2000, machine parts such as gears or sleeves can be produced at substantially reduced manufacturing costs. Finally, the switch to electric drives also increases precision, repeatability and process reliability. This enables customers to produce even complex parts.
