The HybrEx®28 is one of a new generation of extrusion presses that features an innovative drive concept. Compared to conventional extrusion presses, hybrid drive technology significantly reduces energy consumption. Shorter dead cycle times mean productivity can be increased.
The HybrEx®28 was part of an overall order placed with OMAV S.p.a. for the supply of an integrated extrusion line. This included a press feed line, a HybrEx® extrusion press, a handling system including sophisticated quenching system, a profile stretcher, and a finishing saw.
