Upgrade and retrofit state-of-the-art technology of existing lines.
Based on more than 40 years of experience in the aluminium extrusion equipment manufacturing, Tecalex is able to provide a different range of products to upgrade and retrofit existing equipment with state-of-the-art technology.
Within these products, we remark:
Extrusion line general audit
Existing hydraulic systems evaluation
Obsolete hydraulic components replacement by new equivalent ones.
Analysis, update and/or retrofit of press old hydraulics in order to reduce the dead cycle time
Press back-loading retrofit to front-loading achieving a longer billet.
Tie rod ultrasonic check with non-destructive tests
Stretcher pusher replacement by fingers type.
Partial extrusion lines replacement, press feeding replacement, simple puller replacement by double puller, and baskets management automation from profile stacking to load/unload aging oven
Press feeder replacement by 6 axis robot. It reduces the loading time, and allows certain gap in the press feeding implementation.
Out of date PLC's replacement by new updated systems such as Siemens or Allen Bradley, all of them integrated within the same network.
Hot-line and remote service from Tecalex
New main control boards with industrial screens (SCADA) connected within the same PLC's network and getting access to whole line parameters
New production software which allows connection to customers ERP
