Unique equipment provides safe, money saving, environment for removing aluminum from extrusion dies.

Kredit Automation & Controls, Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a contract for their unique post extrusion die cleaning equipment from Indalex Inc. The die cleaning equipment, to be installed as part of the Indalex Aluminum Solutions Connersville IN. expansion, is designed to provide additional capacity needed for their new 6000 ton extrusion press. The equipment will remove aluminum from extrusion dies that are up to 30 inches in diameter at a rate of 45 dies per day. The efficient removal of aluminum from dies is critical to the reprocessing for the extrusion dies for re-use. Unlike the process used throughout most of the industry where dies are placed in open tanks of a hot caustic solution, the aluminum is removed in such a way as to ensure that employees are not exposed to caustic fumes.

Kredit Automation & Controls installed a similar system at Hydro Aluminum of North America where they experienced significant improvements in operator safety, productivity, and a reduction in chemical usage because of efficiency improvements.    Hydro Aluminum of N.A. Phoenix facility reports an annual savings of $60,000 per year with the Kredit Automation die cleaning system and die cleaning time reduced by as much as 50%.

Indalex Aluminum Solutions is one of the world's largest aluminum extrusion companies with dozens of extrusion presses throughout the world.
