HybrEx® extrusion presses consume up to 55 % less energy, while increasing your productivity by up to 20 % at the same time, depending on the application. 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 concept. The HybrEx® hybrid drive system is based primarily on electric servomotors, which are more efficient, faster, and more precise than the mainly hydraulic machines. The hydraulic drive in the HybrEx® extrusion presses is used exclusively to generate high forces for the extrusion process, for discard shearing, and for die cassette shifting.
