NALCO's new Turla Press is coming... 24th May 2016

NALCO's new Turla Press has arrived from Italy and it is currently being installed and commissioned at our Hamilton Mill, it is all very exciting for everyone involved. Last year NALCO one of New Zealand’s leading Aluminium businesses set about replacing the old but much loved Farrell Press with something a bit newer.

NALCO extrusion and powder coating plant supplies product for a hugely diverse range of applications ranging from; architectural products, windows and doors, truck bodies, ship-building; to small electronic components, medical products and lighting. It is important that our new Press has real benefits for our customers. For certain the 8" Turla Press is more powerful and will be able to produce a wider range of products. The latest digital technologies will improve the accuracy of our processes, delivering greater reliability, and repeatability in meeting our customers’ requirements always. 

We still have a bit more work to do before the first billet is extruded so please stand by. The image shows what our new Press looks like when it was set up in Italy.
