Join AEC in Atlanta, Georgia for the Press Maintenance Workshop, April 16-18. Learn new troubleshooting techniques, maintenance best practices, innovations, and more. The 2018 Press Maintenance Workshop will include sessions that focus on various aspects of extrusion press maintenance and operation. Industry suppliers have been invited to set up tabletop displays where they can share their latest technologies and products with workshop registrants.

Who Should Attend

This 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.  The workshop is particularly appropriate for those newly hired, newly promoted, or ready for a refresher, including but not limited to:  

  • Plant maintenance supervisors and technicians
  • Engineers
  • Press operators and others responsible for maintaining extrusion presses.

What You'll Learn

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
  • Learning how best to equip a maintenance department to achieve the greatest results
  • Learning how to troubleshoot systems to reach peak efficiency.
