Extrusion Presses on the shop floor

Legacy Pump Replacement Program

The extrusion press is the workhorse of manufacturing. It can operate productively for many decades with proper maintenance and life-cycle management. However, now many extrusion presses are using outdated, inefficient and unreliable hydraulic pumps.

Improving Extrusion Press Performance with a Hydraulics Upgrade

An emerging challenge for the extrusion press industry is older hydraulics technology: Many presses continue using inefficient and unreliable hydraulic pumps. Parts have become nearly impossible to obtain and qualified technicians are harder to find. The Rexroth engineering team in Bethlehem, PA, collaborated with associates in Germany to design and engineer a pump/manifold/controls replacement unit.
