Sapa Group Announces $34 Million Investment for New Press
The new press will also recover more scrap material than was previously possible at the Cressona plant, resulting in a lower operating cost to produce current rod and bar offerings. Combined, these improvements will create greater efficiency and increased control capabilities. The indirect extrusion process allows for a more consistent grain structure and better dimensional tolerances, which improves the machinability and finishing of Sapa rod and bar products. In addition to the new indirect press, Sapa plans to add automatic packing and aging to the process, enabling a fully integrated line for customers.
