Another completely stripped and rebuilt E2-250, this one with a Minster feedline. The press shut height was raised 6” with risers and new tie rods, the bolster custom machined and outfitted with hydraulic lifters and clamps. Complete mechanical rebuild of the press and feedline with all new electrical, lube and pneumatic components. Press controls were designed and built in-house with lifter and clamp controls integrated. The feedline was updated with Dallas controls. The project from start to finish took approximately 21 weeks. The press was later installed with a sound enclosure at our customers very clean and organized facility in western Michigan.
