Upgrades machinery

For more productivity.

You can adapt your machinery with various innovations of Greiner Extrusion Group to the current needs. You can increase our performance substantially. We are glad to assist you! 

GESS.tronic

The Greiner Energy Saving System.


The majority of energy in profile extrusion is used up by the vacuum pumps in the calibration table. By incorporating a demand actuated system to control individual vacuum pumps along with side-channel compressors for tank emptying, GESS.tronic reduces energy consumption by up to 90%. GESS.tronic can be retrofitted to existing plants, and it is a truly attractive option for every extrusion facility.

Your Benefits

  • Energy savings of up to 90%
  • Vacuum pump regulation making supply of bleeding air unnecessary
  • More stable vacuum using new cyclones and frequency-controlled cyclone pumps
  • Halving of noise level


Savings: ~ 100,000 kWh p. a.

With GESS.tronic you save up to 50% more energy compared to other european systems.

Example window frame: 1,2 kg/m, 5000 hrs/a production time, 1,2 €/kg material cost, 350 kg/hr output

FLOW.CONTROL & FLOW.MATIC

Lowest material usage. Most precise profile geometry.


With FLOW.CONTROL you can improve your production ongoingly. Through control of the melt flow, individual profile sections are decelerated or accelerated selectively with cold or hot air. This results in constant profile dimensions and production near the lowest profile weight tolerance.

Your Benefits

  • Exact profile geometries
  • Lower material costs
  • Highest repeatability
  • Faster start-up
  • Lower production costs

With FLOW.MATIC – the evolution of FLOW.CONTROL – you can now ensure constant functional dimensions of the profile sections fully automatic and within seconds.

Savings due to material savings and lower scrap rate:
FLOW.CONTROL: ~ 27.000 € p. a.
FLOW.MATIC: ~ 48.000 € p. a. (considering personnel costs )
Example window frame: 1,2 kg/m, 5000 hrs/a production time, 1,2 €/kg material cost, 350 kg/hr output

PROFILE.RAISER revolutionizes the start-up process

Automatic positioning and raising of the profiles in the haul-off.

With the PROFILE.RAISER, Greiner Extrusion Group presents a new system that automatically guides profiles to the correct entry position on the haul-off during start-up and at the same time closes a safety gap in the profile extrusion industry. The PROFILE.RAISER specifies the correct entry position of the profile and is designed in such a way that the profiles run into the haul-off at a correct angle all by themselves by means of a special locking system. As a result, the raising of the profiles in the haul-off takes place automatically during the start-up process and without safety concerns for the personnel involved. Greiner Extrusion Group has applied for a patent for this development.

Your Benefits

  • Automatic positioning and raising of the profiles
  • Avoids manual twisting of profiles
  • Reduces personnel deployment and costs
  • Increases work safety
  • Assembly without tools

GESS basic

The perfect retro fit kit.

The Greiner Extrusion Group has developed a simple, cost-effective energy-saving system for lines without PLC control (TEC.LINE and RED.LINE basic). GESS. basic is operated via a simple touchscreen. The vacuum pumps and cyclone pumps of the calibration table can be controlled in automatic mode via set-points. This means the desired vacuum values are no longer reached on opening of the bleed-air valves, but through controlled energy-saving regulation of the pumps.

Your Benefits

  • Simple setting of the desired vacuum values Less noise
  • Also retrofittable in existing lines
  • Easy operation
  • Discharge by touchscreen possible
  • Operation by phone app possible
... and energy savings of about 50%

RED.CUT

Highest precision in clean profile cuttting.


RED.CUT is impressive with its perfect cutting quality that provides for the exact cutting of profiles. Variable cutting speed, rapid tool-less knife changing and the PLC knife heating system are the key benefits of RED.CUT. A crank drive provides for a long life span and low maintenance.

Your Benefits

  • One blade for profile width up to 235 mm
  • Variable cutting speeds
  • Rapid tool-less knife changing
  • PLC knife heating system
  • NEW: RED.CUT C300 for profiles width 300mm, height 200mm


Savings: ~ 1 profile rod per 1,500 cuttings
Example window frame: 1,2 kg/m, 5000 hrs/a production time, 1,2 €/kg material cost, 350 kg/hr output

Closed water circuit

Benefits around the cooling water.


Polluted cooling water through the use of th closed water circuit belongs to the past! The maintenance of the water system is significantly lower as contamination can not enter the cooling system. With cleaner water scratches can be reduced on the profiles. Use of the closed water circuit reduces cooling water consumption significantly, it also prevents unnecessary heat absorption of the cooling water and saves energy in water treatment. 

The closed water circulation can either be installed directly in new Greiner calibration tables or be retrofitted quickly and easily to existing calibration tables! Our experts will configure the necessary parts for you upon request.

Your Benefits

  • Energy savings and fewer rejects
  • Central cooling water connection for dry-calibration and PDC
  • No contamination in the cooling medium


Savings: ~ 50 % water circulation
Example window frame: 1,2 kg/m, 5000 hrs/a production time, 1,2 €/kg material cost, 350 kg/hr output

Air support control

Providing ventilation of inner chambers.


The supporting air control makes ventilation of the inner chamber safe. The controlled air supply secures the geometry of the inner chambers, thus avoiding scrap.
 
Your Benefits
  • Automatic ventilation of the inner chambers
  • Secures the geometry of the inner chambers
  • Avoiding of rejects
  • Automatic deviation signal

Savings: ~ 7,000 € p. a.
Example window frame: 1,2 kg/m, 5000 hrs/a production time, 1,2 €/kg material cost, 350 kg/hr output

Controller replacement

Conversion to the new generation.

Do you still have a unit with one of the following controller generations?

  • Digitax (DBE140, DBE 420) and/or
  • Unidrive Classic (SP1405 or SP1403)

For older models, these controls will not be available for long.  We have therefore worked out a conversion kit for you together with our partner.

Ensure your spare parts availability and prevent prolonged unplanned machine downtime!

Wide pads

For a quick change over.

Reduce set-up time by half when changing lugs, and reduce lug marks on the profile by retrofitting your existing unit with our wide lugs (98 mm instead of 50 mm).

Your Benefits

  • Significantly wider pads
  • Toolless replacement
  • Halving of setup time

Savings: ~ 30 mins. per setup process
Example window frame: 1,2 kg/m, 5000 hrs/a production time, 1,2 €/kg material cost, 350 kg/hr output
