With its platen size of 3500 x 3500 mm the machine is a response to the growing demand for ever larger components and structural parts – particularly in automotive. Toggle-free (TF) machines generate the closing force hydraulically, whereas those with toggle do this mechanically. This means the toggle-free machine only needs two platens instead of three, which means a smaller footprint. Italpresse Gauss introduced the TF machine concept in 2005 after developing it fully in-house, including the closing unit. The biggest closing force of a TF to date was 4,400 tons.

Marco Giegold, Area Sales Manager at Italpresse Gauss: „Lightweight construction and electric vehicles are driving the demand for ever bigger castings – structural components and battery housings, for example. Die casting machine sizes have to keep up with that. Our TF 5700 is the biggest toggle-free machine to date and is ahead of its time digitally, too. The market’s responded very positively to it and we’re getting enquiries from around the world."
