Steel Extrusion Press Designs

Rod and tube extrusion presses

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 stem speed of 400 mm/s. To achieve a satisfactory service life, the process requires glass lubrication and an internal mandrel cooling system. Extrusion plants for seamless tube extrusion are usually complemented with a vertical piercing/expanding press to complete preforming before extrusion. Some variants also use this extrusion process to produce tube and semi-finished products from titanium, zirconium, or super alloys. Common to all is the FEM-optimized, prestressed press frame in the classic Schloemann lamellar tie rod/pressure box design. Moreover, our rod and tube extrusion presses for steel combine a proven press design with high cost efficiency. You can perfectly complete your press line with SMS heavy-duty run-out systems for steel extrusion. They are perfect for quenching, cooling, and cutting your extruded products.
