Die & Roll Refurbishment

CFE undertake all die and roll refurbishment at the UK plant in Haydock, Merseyside.

Die Refurbishing entails unblocking the holes, machining the die face, and countersinking. CFE have invested in automated equipment to do this, which includes a water jet operating at up to 15,000 PSI, two CNC grinders to machining the die face and two countersinking machines. Tramp metal and broken studs removed as part of die refurbishing process.

This investment enables us to provide a fast turnaround for reduced downtime and value for money.

The Benefits:

  • Maintains die integrity for optimum pelleting efficiency
  • Even die surface for perfect alignment with roll assemblies
  • CNC countersinking ensures even angle and depth to maximise throughput of refurbished dies
  • Reduced energy consumption of pellet press
  • Quality assured every time refurbished

Roll Assembly Refurbishing 

Roll Refurbishing involves dismantling and rebuilding used roll assemblies. CFE has invested in semi-automated equipment, which includes 150 and 100 tonne presses, purpose-built manipulators and an automatic washer with conveyor. This labour-saving investment has created efficiencies and enhances the quality of finished roll assembly.
