SSI adds automated molding press to growing technology center

To further expand its metallurgical processing portfolio, SSI Sintered Specialties has announced the purchase of an Arburg Allrounder multi-component molding press. The nearly all-electric press, complimented with full automation, will join SSI’s growing fleet of new equipment in its technology center located in Janesville, Wisconsin.

This equipment addition follows SSI’s recent investment in an ELNIK high temperature refractory metal-lined vacuum furnace, which is slated for installation in September 2021. Both pieces of equipment allow SSI to immediately expand on its technology portfolio of advanced powder metallurgy, metal injection molding and metal 3D printing processes. The new Arburg molding cell will be dedicated to SSI's new technology center and will showcase fully automated hands-free molding, including all aspects of part handling and full material management from regrind to virgin material blending.

SSI is eager to continue investing in new production capabilities and talented engineering experts as future developments are announced.

The combination of new equipment, material development and the company’s industry-leading talent allows SSI to target the diversification of both its technology portfolio and the markets it serves. SSI will focus on providing high volume powder metallurgy, MIM and metal 3D printing production to the following markets: aerospace, automotive, defense, electronics, industrial, medical, and sports equipment.
