This workshop is intended to cover the types of issues encountered during "a day in the life" of an extrusion maintenance mechanic.  It is a fact that preventive maintenance is far less costly than a press shut down.  Those attending the workshop will benefit by:

  • Learning how to minimize press down-time
  • Obtaining a greater understanding of the many aspects of extrusion press maintenance
  • Learning methods to achieve and maintain optimum press alignment
  • Exploring innovations in process control, automation, and systems integration
  • Mastering techniques for electrical control equipment maintenance
  • Understanding how best to equip a maintenance department to achieve the greatest results
  • Learning how to troubleshoot systems to reach peak efficiency.

The Press Maintenance Workshop is intended to benefit extrusion press maintenance personnel at every skill level and experience providing new insights, ideas, and methods.  It is tailored both to industry management personnel and to those with hands-on responsibility.

 Topics to be covered are the essential elements of extrusion practice: hydraulics, controls, tooling, major component inspection and repair, safety, and the latest in equipment design. An overview of the extrusion process will provide a greater understanding of production concerns, along with a presentation about important thermal factors throughout the extrusion/aging cycle. Then, rounding out the curriculum, experienced pros will speak about improving the efficiency and efficacy of daily maintenance operations.
