Hands on

Manual straightening presses

The deformation of metal workpieces is an undesired, yet material inherent consequence of various metal working and refining processes. It requires a sophisticated straightening process to bring the parts back into their ideally designed shape so that these high-quality components can perfectly and durably fulfil their intended tasks.

MAE manual straightening presses offer a cost-effective concept, guaranteeing precise and sensitive processing of your workpieces. Measuring in one setting ensures high repeating accuracy and fast working even for less experienced operators.

General properties

Pressing forces from 160 to 20,000 kN
Workpiece lengths from 30 to 20,000 mm
Workpiece diameters from 3 to 900 mm
Unit weights from 5 grams to 20 tons
Straightening accuracy down to 0.01 mm

Automatically in shape

Automatic straightening machines

Are you straightening short or long parts, round or profiled? Are you looking for the right machine for your straightening process?
We have two concepts: our automatic straighteners of the M-AH and ASV series.

With these series, you straighten your workpieces efficiently and precisely down to 0.01 mm.

 General properties

  Pressing forces from 15 to 25,000 kN
  Workpiece lengths from 40 mm to 30 m
  Workpiece diameters from 2 to 800 mm      Unit weights from 5 grams to 20 tons          Straightening accuracy down to 0.01 mm

Precise forces

Wheelset presses

Innovative technical solutions. For more than 70 years, MAE has been developing and supplying assembly presses for rail vehicle wheelsets. Whether high-speed trains or street cars, we have the right solution.

 General properties

  Pressing forces from 2,000 to 6,300 kN                Shaft lengths from 400 to 3,200 mm                  Wheel diameters from 400 to 1,500 mm                Unit weights up to 8,000 kg

Trust is good, control is better.

Measuring machines

Your manufacturing process does not require straightening, but you still need reliable workpiece data for your process? Do you need to measure gear teeth during production? Then we have the right solution for you here, too, to ensure the quality of your workpieces in terms of concentricity, length and curvature: Measuring machines from MAE.

Power from the start

Hydraulic presses

Hydraulic presses are subjected to considerable loads in daily operation. We develop presses for a wide variety of applications that meet these high requirements. A wide range of machines with solid components. Our S and DS series with C and O frames and the VS four-column press are based on a modular system.
We will also find a solution optimally designed to your requirements for your individual task with pressing forces of up to 25,000 kN. We recombine individual assemblies or adapt them accordingly as required.
