Service packages for Extrusion Presses

Tailor-made service packages for each extrusion press

The SMS group Technical Service concept focuses on three main aspects to sustainably ensure successful operation and the competitiveness of plant operators:

  • Quality
  • Productivity
  • Production stability

When developing the service portfolio, these factors were given priority. Our customer can always choose between individual services or a tailor-made overall package. Extrusion press services follow our customers’ production schedule and the individual services activities are coordinated accordingly. This means that individual services can be combined freely, taking into account scheduled production downtimes.
Our extrusion press services include:

Crack testing

Crack tests at regular intervals are indispensable to prevent failure of the plant. The SMS group Technical Service knows exactly which areas of the components are subjected to the highest stresses. If any damage is detected, we derive direct recommendations for action.

Goal: Preventing unscheduled downtimes, improving production stability.

Equipment check

Service technicians record the actual condition of the plant and discuss the results with you immediately on site. Afterwards, you will receive a report containing maintenance measures as well as recommendations for repair and modernization.

Goal: Identifying and scheduling necessary measures in due time.

Maintenance support

Based on the results of the equipment check, we support you with the implementation of the measures – no matter whether they concern hydraulic, mechanical or electrical equipment.

Goal: Utilizing the manufacturer’s know-how, ensuring productivity.

Alignment check

Specifically trained service technicians check the geometrical alignment of the plant.

Goal: Creating the basis for excellent quality of the extruded sections.

Optimization of hydraulic system and control technology

In order to keep plant productivity on a continuously high level, optimization of the hydraulic systems and control technology is required.

Goal: Reducing non-productive times and pressure peaks, ensuring productivity.

Our service technicians are specifically trained for the work on extrusion presses and focus exclusively on this type of equipment – also for plants from other manufacturer.
