Pahnke open-die presses have been one of the world’s most technologically advanced lines for decades. This is due in part to their drive technology with the so-called Pahnke Modified Sinusoidal Direct Drive (PMSD) system. As opposed to conventional drive systems, which control the press movement via valves, the PMSD system uses high-pressure pumps that can be quickly regulated. These ensure smooth running, absolute process reliability and much lower energy consumption. The result is service lives of over 50,000 operating hours and energy savings of 20-30% for oil-hydraulic drives and over 60% for water-hydraulic drives.
