Customer: Inapal Plásticos, Leça do Balio (Portugal)
Producing more-complex components in less time doesn’t always require a new press. Sometimes an overhaul is sufficient, as we proved at Inapal Plásticos in Portugal.

Inapal Plásticos manufactures SMC outer skin parts for the commercial vehicle industry. A polyester press from 1978 and a Hoesch press from 1986 were somewhat outdated, with a negative impact on plant availability. The valves, control system and sensors of both presses were no longer current.
