HybrEx® extrusion presses consume significantly less energy, while substantially increasing your productivity at the same time. This qualifies the HybrEx® extrusion press for our Ecoplants label which denotes economically and ecologically convincing solutions from SMS group.
The new extrusion press generation implements a hybrid drive strategy. The HybrEx® hybrid drive concept is based primarily on electric servomotors, which are more efficient, faster, and more precise than the mainly hydraulic machines used in the past. Conversely, the hydraulic drive is only used to generate high forces for the extrusion process, for discard shearing and for cassette shifting.
