Heavy metal extrusion presses - Nonferrous extrusion press designs


Direct and indirect extrusion

Typically, indirect presses are used for rod and wire extrusion. That's because the lack of friction between the billet and container means it's possible to extrude longer billets, boosting productivity. Also available for you are multi-purpose presses with combined direct and indirect modes. You can perfectly complete your press line with SMS run-out systems for heavy metal. They are also customized from a variety of specialized individual components.

Special features:

  • Our direct extrusion presses for heavy metal combine a proven press design with high cost efficiency
  • Reliable, low-maintenance design for high availability and output
  • Dummy block lubrication which does not affect non-productive times because the spray head is integrated in the billet loader
  • Customized run-out systems include multi-coilers, coil conveyors with cooling systems, straight run-out systems with multiple pullers, cooling tables for tubes or bars, saws, etc.

Key data

Tube extrusion presses

Special features:

  • Short-stoke tube extruders are used as front loaders with centered billet clamping and as back loaders in the conventional design
  • Customized run-out systems include multi-coilers, coil conveyors with cooling systems, straight run-out systems with multiple pullers, cooling tables for tubes or bars, saws, etc.
