Futura’s new Presezzi Press featured in Octobers Issue of Light Metal Age

As Seen in LIGHT METAL AGE, OCTOBER 2014

Futura Industries installed a new 3,300 tonne, 9 inch Presezzi press. Optimum process control and energy savings is done via precise control of five individual servo motors at 200 horsepower each. Using high velocity, multi-sided air and water quench systems that put out over 600 gallons per minute of water at nearly 130 lbs per square inch allows Futura to effectively quench thick 6061 or other hard alloy shapes. A state-of-the art OMAV profile handling system allows for profiles nearing 20 lbs/ft. The whole system works seamlessly via computer controls and the latest technology in process controls. All of this allows Futura to accurately produce a wide range of profiles and alloys in complex and tight tolerance configurations.
