- Press control system implementing isothermal extrusion, to maintain a constant billet temperature through the die, thus achieving consistent mechanical properties;
- Fully-electric billet loader and die-change station, eliminating extra hydraulic systems and reducing maintenance costs;
- Wireless tablet control systems for easy and efficient machine operation, maintenance and remote service support;

Hydraulic pumps and electrical cabinets pre-installed on skids, for layout optimization and quick installation.

Danieli Breda also will act as project master and coordinate the activities of the sub-suppliers, making sure that PMS will match its target in terms of plant performance and time schedule.
