Key features

The IP and IPr die casting machines are solid, reliable and ensure high productivity cycle times. 

Quality: high quality machine contruction, made of forged steel platen with coating to increase hardness, and special steel alloy tie bars.

Precise: equipped with SC 3.0 shot end system to maintain absolute consistency and repeatability of the shot, ensuring highest quality of the casting.

Powerful: IPr with larger platens to meet the increasing demands for the production of aluminium structural parts; increased injection stroke in the IPr model allows an augmented metal load quantity to achieve heavier casting weight, bigger dimension or increased production with multiple print dies.

Productive: IPr (Plus) version can use the injection of the upper size offering a higher injection stroke and force at the same closing force to save investment costs (in case higher closing force is not required).

Efficient: higher speed in closing and opening phase of IPr due to the redesigned toggle helps reduce cycle times.

The IP and IPr models can be supplied as automated solutions: a fully automated cell that integrates all peripheral devices, from the furnace to automatic deburring with pieces ready for machining.


Automotive Parts: Engine blocks, gearboxes, oil sumps, engine support, structural parts (battery housing, roof, shot tower, pillars).

Other Industries: Radiators for household heating, escalator steps, chassis and components for electronic devices, telecommunication components, household appliances, electric motors.

Thanks to decades of experience and a worldwide install base, we design and manufacture a wide range of quality and rigid high pressure die casting machines with closing forces ranging from 550 to 4400 tonnes.

Our IP and IPr three platen die casting machines are solid, reliable and ensure high productivity cycle times.

Engineered to increase your productivity

  • Enhanced hydraulic system of IPr ensures greater reliability and uptime.
  • Rock-steady, solid and reliable performance of our die casting technology ensures consistent production and on-time delivery of high quality castings to your customers.
  • Higher speed in closing phase of IPr reduces cycle times and ensures greater productivity.
  • The engineered high repeatability increases productivity and reduces scrap rates.

Reliable and LEAN for optimal performance

  • Our control system and easy to use operator panel comply with the latest standards minimising complexity, and ensuring the highest precision.
  • Helps you optimise and make the most of your space with the IPr die casting machine offering longer strokes and larger platens in smaller space.
  • The innovative machine design reduces wear and requires little maintenance.
  • Our friendly and reliable support services, operator training and foundry technology service agreements will help you optimise your productivity and performance.

Supplied with HMe

All HPDC (high pressure die casting) machines are supplied with HMe, a machine control system with advanced data management and diagnostics capabilities. HMe offers real-time storage and powerful analysis of machine and process data, as well as the integration of peripheral and mobile devices. It opens up the possibility of controlling the whole die casting process holistically through a single user interface.

The IP and IPr in brief:

IP: Available from 550 to 1100 tonnes

IPr: Available from 1150 to 4400 tonnes

IP: Decades of technology, consolidated design

IPr:  Larger platens, increased injection stroke and higher speed in closing and opening phase; possibility to configure higher injection stroke at the same closing force (Plus version)

Quality and solid reliability as standard

Our IP and IPr machines are built using forged platens made of only certified alloy steel to ensure absolute quality. All our platens have additional coating for increased hardness, greater resistance to wear and to prevent lubricant damage.

Tie bars are made of special steel with a rolling thread - state of the art technology for higher tie bar strength.

Absolute injection precision

From 750 tonnes, it's equipped with the SC 3.0 shot end that ensures

  • Maximum consistency and repeatability in the different shot stages which guarantees uniform casting quality.
  • Increased reliability of the injection: the use of flexible pipes avoids breakages that might occur during high pressure peaks.
  • Easier access to parts of the injection system that requires maintenance, this ensures a LEAN maintenance process and increased machine uptime.

Efficiency all round

Rigid construction of the Closing Unit secures better closing of the die to reduce scrap rates and flash.

A quicker die change is made possible with the tie bars automatic removal option to allow more comfortable and LEAN die change. 



The control system is tailored to your needs. It is based on a standard Siemens or Allen Bradley PLC with software specifically designed for die casting. Its user-friendly design makes it easy to operate and upgrade as it is made of standard control components that offer reliability and availability of supply.

We require die casting machines with high performance and stability. To meet this requirement, we chose Italpresse Gauss high pressure die casting machines. In terms of processing stability, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and product yield, we have been extremely satisfied. We are incredibly impressed with the quality of Italpresse Gauss equipment and are very satisfied with its performance. Communication is clear and the service quality is also good, so we are confident in their equipment. This is why we choose Italpresse Gauss.
