Press relocations and extensions

When relocating secondhand presses we ensure that “what doesn’t fit is engineered to fit.” We will formulate an appropriate concept and submit an offer suited to your specific plant architecture. And we take care of all the details, from disassembly and transport to re-assembly and commissioning. If you wish, our specialist crew can also expand your press capacity with additional towers and/or enhance your production flexibility with additional aggregates such as bay-window rollers, reelstands, folders or new web leads.
