Founded in 1927, OLEXA® is a family-owned company specialising in continuous presses. It has more than 2,000 machines in operation in 50 countries in Europe, America, Asia, and Africa.
In the boiler shop, an expert welder wanted to be replaced by a robot capable of performing long and heavy tasks.
OLEXA® (45 employees and €8 million in sales) designs and manufactures oil and grease extraction systems and other special industrial applications at its 4,000-square-meter plant in Arras, France.
Briefly, oil extraction consists of processing oil seeds (rapeseed, sunflower, flax, soybean, cotton, hemp, peanuts, etc.) to extract the oil.
OLEXA® provides turnkey units from seed receipt to storage of the finished products (oil and cake).
The conditioner is an essential preparation before oilseed pressing and dehydrates the material to be processed.
