Keymark Corp., a full-service aluminum extrusion manufacturer, says its new 14-inch circle size press is fully operational. The press will enable architects and engineers to design larger, more detailed extrusions, with the width and precision not previously available in the marketplace, according to the company.Â
The press will add 32 million lbs. of demonstrated capacity to an 88 million lb. company wide capacity, while adding 55 new jobs in the Lakeland, Fla., plant. The new press comes complete with ancillary equipment designed to enhance the speed and precision of the finished product: Edward's Kevlar belt-driven handling system, water-quench system, automatic stacking equipment and line-stenciling capabilities, the company adds.
