  • Extrusion presses for steel

    For profiles, rods, and seamless tubes production

    Main data

    The challenging conditions involved in extruding bars, profiles, hollow sections, and seamless tubes made from steel require sophisticated equipment. It takes high extrusion speeds to reduce the contact time of the hot material with the tooling and dies. Our steel extrusion presses are precisely tailored to your specific applications. Here you benefit from our highly dynamic accumulator drives that enable a maximum stem speed of 400 mm/s.

    Extrusion plants for seamless tubes are usually complemented with a vertical piercing/expanding press to complete preforming before extrusion. Some customers also use this extrusion process to produce tubes and semi-finished products from titanium, zirconium, or nickel-based alloys. Common to all is the FEM-optimized, pre-stressed press frame in the classic Schloemann lamellar tie rod / pressure box design. You can perfectly complete your press line with SMS group heavy-duty run-out systems for steel extrusion. They are perfect for quenching, cooling, and cutting your extruded products.
