Aluminium Press – Broken Tap removal

Broken tap on aluminium extrusion plant

28th March 2024

We recently completed the removal of a tap from an aluminium extrusion press –

The M64 Tap had snapped halfway down the hole during a major breakdown.

Our Foretract engineers were able to respond on a next day emergency basis using our specialist metal disintegration equipment to remove the core of the tap and collapse it in on itself.

The onsite engineers were extremely happy as they were now able to get on with the job in hand!
