MAE acquires Eitel Presses Inc.

We are pleased to inform you that effective January 6th, 2014, MAE has expanded its presence in the Americas through the acquisition of Eitel Presses, Inc. This strategic step strengthens our presence in North America as well as enhances our global presence. The new MAE subsidiary will be headquartered in the existing facility in eastern Pennsylvania and will operate under the name

MAE-Eitel, Inc.

Eitel Presses Inc., founded in 1973, has been the North American market leader for hydraulic and elec-tro-mechanical straightening presses and straightening machines for over 40 years with an installed base of over 2000 machines.

With the automatic straightening machines for large parts (type ASV) and the wheel set assembly press-es (type RADS) of MAE Götzen GmbH we will be able to offer new solutions to prospective American customers in the steel and railway industry immediately. At the same time, we can offer the current machines of MAE Götzen GmbH with their Siemens based electrical components as well as the ma-chines of MAE-Eitel Inc. built to US-standards with Allen Bradley components.

The international service network of the MAE Group assures you a short response time at all worldwide locations, with technical assistance and expertise that results in maximum uptime of your machines. In addition, MAE-Eitel Inc. will provide service for the automatic straightening machines make Hess-MAE currently on the market.

This acquisition is an important strategic step that reaffirms MAE role as a reliable, financially stable and innovative partner. To think globally and to act locally are MAE-specific qualities which will now support you worldwide to solve your straightening problems efficiently and effectively.

  • Nov 29, 2013: Steel giant with a delicate touch

The leveling system built by MAE Götzen straightens gigantic steel workpieces both powerfully and precisely. This system, created in a close development partnership with Bosch Rexroth, reduces energy consumption by up to 80 percent.

The large-scale leveling unit shapes workpieces by applying forces of up to 25,000 kilonewtons with tolerances of less than 0.1 millimeter.

At this steel mill, great force is applied with a delicate touch. The master computer sends all the data on the workpiece to the leveling system, which then sets parameters in regard to diameter, material and the required degree of accuracy. The electric motor for the pump drive starts up with a purr before a hydraulically powered ram presses the workpiece against two anvils. This is done so carefully that the remaining deviation is less than 0.1 millimeters – and that at forces of up to 25,000 kilonewtons.

The large-scale leveling unit of the MAE Götzen brand is an entirely new generation of machinery in the tough steel mill setting. With a modern, multi-stage concept, the leveling system can be used for a multitude of products – from large steel rollers to delicate profiles. “Our development goal was to create a series of modularized units that would cover the entire range of needs for leveling long parts –from relatively low forces with manual charging to extremely powerful, fully automatic concepts,” explains Manfred Mitze, chief executive at MAE Götzen.
