UACJ Extrusion Nagoya Corporation of Japan has awarded SMS group the final acceptance certificate for the supplied new HybrEx®40 extrusion press line. With this investment, UACJ is expanding the extrusion capacity at its plant in Nagoya in Japan. The line's core unit, the HybrEx40 extrusion press, is one of SMS group's latest-generation presses. The use of hybrid drive technology significantly reduces energy consumption compared to conventional extrusion presses. What's more, the HybrEx boasts a compact design thanks to the optimized hydraulic system concept. The award-winning press enclosure design eliminates the need for any other safety barrier systems. The HybrEx®40 extrusion press processes 10-inch aluminium billets at a maximum press force of 40 MN and at a speed of up to 21 millimeters per second.

As well as the HybrEx40, the scope of supply for the extrusion press line includes an induction furnace TEM-PRO Heater from IAS, a subsidiary of SMS group, and an advanced profile handling system including intensive air/water spray cooling quench from SMS group company OMAV.
