SMS group is the only manufacturer to supply all extrusion processes for all materials and alloys, including all ancillary equipment and automation systems. More than 1,400 reference plants worldwide prove our experience and depth of real-world expertise. We engineer integrated systems along the entire process chain - from extrusion presses to the finishing and further processing equipment. So you benefit from both profound know-how and top production reliability.

Concepts

Direct and indirect extrusion presses

What's special about our heavy metal extrusion presses is that they are precisely tailored to your specific applications. Nevertheless, common to all is the FEM-optimized, pre-stressed press frame in the classic Schloemann lamellar tie rod/pressure box design. This is highly rigid and ensures both a long service life and optimum product quality. Moreover, our direct extrusion presses for heavy metal combine a proven press design with high cost efficiency.

Tube extrusion presses

SMS tube extrusion presses feature an internal inline piercing device. Combined with the linear guiding system for the container holder and moving crosshead, this piercing device ensures excellent eccentricity tolerances for extruded seamless tubes. Also customizable are our run-out systems for heavy metal extrusion presses. We can assemble them from a variety of specialized individual components.
