Hexadex calls on IPP for expansion plans

November 2012

Hexadex, a large industrial group and world leaders in the invention, design and manufacture of catalytic converter units, appointed International Power Presses (IPP) to act on their behalf with advice and engineering knowledge. Hexadex had purchased a complete hydraulic press line from Stadco Ltd, with IPP being Stadco's selling agent to dispose of this surplus equipment.

The project also required the press line (comprising of 1 x 1800 ton and 4 x 600 ton press machines and a later sourced 1300 ton press machine) to be upgraded, retrofitted with automation, delivered and installed in their factory in Sweden, including inter-press automation, quick die change capability and a complete conveyor system - total consignment weight exceeding 1200 tonnes.

A full turnkey service for dismantling, refurbishing, upgrading, shipping, installation and commissioning of the press line

International Power Presses delivered the complete service of dismantling, removal of all the press machines into storage and producing engineering condition reports, together with providing advice on specific refurbishment and upgrading. They also provided all the specialist transport and complete engineering services for heavy lift, installation and commissioning in their factory near Nykoping.

Steve Edwards, Director of Purchasing for the Hexadex Group said:

"International Power Presses is the preferred supplier of the Hexadex Group for the purchase and supply of pre-used machinery and equipment. They have successfully sourced, moved and made good for installation and commissioning, a fully integrated six-hydraulic press line and associated auxiliary equipment.

"The project management and attention to detail demonstrated by IPP throughout this major exercise has been excellent. It is refreshing to work with an organisation that embraces the concept of customer service and truly makes it the centre of their trading activities”.
