Diagnostics and Experiences on Extrusion Press Tooling

Werner Hähnel and Klaus Gillmeister, Kind & Co Edelstahlwerk KG, Wiehl, Germany

Track: EXTRUSION EQUIPMENT - Measurement & Diagnostics

ABSTRACT --- The principal range of activities of Kind & Co. Edelstahlwerk is
the development and manufacture of forged tool steels. Equipment includes an
ESR remelting plant, various forging presses, ring rolling mills, annealing plant,
vacuum hardening plant, finished product stocks and mechanical workshop. The
workshop includes a Service Centre for the extrusion press industry, with a
particular focus in replacing liners and repairing used containers. It also provides
a driven metallurgical examination and defect analysis of these components. A
specially established database enables lifelong diagnostic on individual container
and therefore is able to implement a variety of requisite measures to extend its
service life. The following report includes a number of examples shown on
actual tools of an extrusion press and it also illustrates improvement potentials in
the future.
