DORST supplies presses for a variety of applications:




Isostatic powder presses enable fully automated forming of components close to their final shape, thus making it possible to produce design geometries in large quantities without compromising quality.

For round, square, rectangular and oval ceramic parts up to 480 mm, 1 to 3 cavities with a closing force of 2000 to 7000 kN and isostatic pressure of 300 bar.

For thin-walled technical ceramic pipes with a thickness of 1.2 to 2 mm and a maximum length of 350 mm with a closing force of 400 to 600 kN and an isostatic pressure of 2000 to 2300 bar.

For thick pipes and thin and heavy technical ceramic rods up to 450 mm in length with a closing force of 600 kN and isostatic pressure: 2000 bar.

For shafts, axles, tubes, bushings, nozzles, spheres up to 8 cavities with a closing force of 600 kN and an isostatic pressure of 2000 bar.


Household tableware and ceramics, solid-state ceramic electrolyte substrates for sodium-sulphur or sodium-nickel-chloride batteries (ZEBRA batteries). Line automation options are available including granulate supply, the press and the tool system.


They enable the forming of articles close to their final shape, making it possible to produce uniform geometries with considerable demands on casting and design in medium or large quantities in a cost-efficient way without compromising quality.

For sanitary ware with pressing force from 600 to 3000 kN, 2- to 7-piece moulds, 2 to 6 cycles/h.

For tableware with pressing force from 1200 kN, 2-piece mould, 10 to 40 cycles/h.



Crockery, vases, bottles, hollow or solid casting, lavatories, washbasins, kitchen sinks, shower trays and ceramic slip basins. Robotised line.


These high rigidity machines enable final forming of parts with great accuracy and cold reshaping after pressing and sintering. Their modular and compact design provides a positioning accuracy of ±0.01 mm. DORST TECHNOLOGIES’ CNC sizing presses deliver extraordinary rigidity and stability, both of which are prerequisites for maximum precision and productivity in daily use. The machine design allows short set-up times in case of product changes, either by using interchangeable die sets or by making the changes directly in the press’s working area. DORST TECHNOLOGIES’ machine portfolio consists of hydraulic CNC presses which feature pressing forces of 1200 kN to, 12000 kN with positioning accuracy of ±0.01 mm.

A selection of integrated automation systems ranging from several system variants to modern robot solutions is available for synchronised, time-accurate feeding plus part recognition, alignment and identification. The high degree of flexibility in part automation design makes it an economically attractive option.



Already pressed / sintered parts. Line automation options are available (fast loading, recognition and alignment, part identification, oiling stations, etc.).


Particular robustness, durability and wear resistance are the prominent features of the DORST vacuum extrusion presses we offer which have been specially developed in terms of both machine design and technical engineering for the extrusion of heavy or very abrasive materials. The presses can be used almost universally and operated anywhere, whether horizontally or vertically, depending on the application.

Key features include a central vacuum chamber for high-density materials and modern frequency-controlled electric drives and the possibility of very precise sectional temperature control of the material on both the feed and press side to achieve high-quality production results with high repeatability. A modern, network-capable process control system is used for visualisation, operation and evaluation of all process data.
