Minting Presses

Locatelli Meccanica Oil-Hydraulic presses are suitable for coining collector coins and medals in PROOF quality, even with high relief, as well as sizing preformed workpieces.

The function “multiple pressing” allows repeated build-up and decrease of the pressing force without the opening of the tool, giving an optimum coining result without doublings.

For the manufacturing of high-quality coins, the machine can be equipped with automation consisting of a blank magazine, suction cups type transfer system, and an electromechanical positioned deposit tray.

Full noise insulation allows using of the press even in noise-sensitive areas with clean-room character. Sizing of workpieces results in a perfect finish of the surfaces having high dimensional stability with undisturbed fibrous structure, saving cost with intensive use of the press.

Thanks to its touch screen color display of 10″ and to friendly user programs, these machines are easy to use. The built-in Ethernet port ensures the highest possible efficiency and connectivity to the production centers.

The advantages of using a Locatelli Meccanica machine, a machine different from the others.

  • Standard sizes: from 343 to 11.760 kN (35 – 1.200Tons) Costumer specific sizes on request
  • 7 guiding points on the upper table (ram), for perfect parallelism of the table.
  • Perfect control of the coin thickness, with exact control of pressure, timing, and position. No burr on edge guaranteed.
  • Multiple pressing in a closed mold, for full control of the metal flow inside the mould.
  • Ramps of pressure: possibility to set the time to reach the set pressure (the operator decides this time, not the machine according to the metal’s resistance).
  • Safety for the mould: alarms on double charging, wrong charging (by standard software), no charging (by option special device).
  • A memory of thousands of programs, with alphanumeric names for an easy recall.
  • World wide access to the computer systems of our machinery for analytical diagnostics and subsequent modification/update/tailoring / fine-tuning of our software.
  • Industry 4.0 software to monitor the production costs and the total production management, fully integrated for a precise analysis. It creates what has been called a Smart Factory.
