Press modernization (projects)

We modernise your complete step forming system as a general contractor (press, electrical engineering, automation, tool change, switch protection).

Presses are very long-lasting economic goods. It is not uncommon for presses to be in use for 40 years or more. After 10 to 15 years of use, it is often enough to overhaul the plant or retrofit a new control system. However, if the system is even older or your production requirements have changed, it is worthwhile to extensively modernize your system, which requires extensive intervention in the area:

  • Press (mechanically or hydraulically driven)
  • tool change
  • Automation and drive technology
  • Automation (Robots, Feeders, Transfers, Front and End of Line)
  • soundproofing
