Based on our experience, we know what you want from a powder press: cost-efficient production of complex sintered parts in consistently high quality. These parts go above all to the automotive as well electrical and general mechanical engineering industries. There is even more potential because new materials are constantly being developed and demand for complex, near-net-shape parts is growing.

With its hydraulic radial forging machines, SMS group offers a machine type characterised by high productivity and forging precision. The main advantage of radial forging machines is that the workpiece is enclosed by four forging dies and is therefore only able to yield axially, thereby avoiding any lateral spread. Radial forging machines are particularly suitable for bars, shafts, axles and thick-walled tubes.
