MIB by Numalliance :


MIB by Numalliance is a French company based in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.

Founded in 1955, under the name IBCM (Industrie du Bois et de la Création Mécanique), it was for a long time specialised in the design of hydraulic plate presses for the manufacture of plywood before diversifying into other sectors.

Acquired by the Numalliance group in 2019, world leader in turnkey productivity solutions for wire, tube and flatbed forming, MIB has managed to establish itself as a key player in the world of hydraulic and electric presses and production lines thanks to its know-how and expertise.

The hydraulic presses are designed and manufactured according to the most demanding customer specifications. MIB by Numalliance presses are used for the transformation of composites and thermosets (hot compression hydraulic presses, hydraulic presses with heated platens, laboratory hydraulic presses, hydraulic presses for RTM, SMC, BMC processes, composite stamping), for the transformation of metals (single/double/triple-acting hydraulic presses, hydraulic cutting presses, hydraulic crimping presses, hydraulic presses for press-fitting… ) and for other industrial applications.

MIB has also developed a range of standard hydraulic presses and its latest creation is an electric press offering very high capacities, all these presses can be autonomous or integrated into a machine.

We also offer you production lines adapted to your needs, with press loading and unloading solutions, and quick tool changes. Our experience in the most demanding technical fields such as automotive, aerospace and composite enables us to offer you optimised and reliable solutions, while meeting the strictest standards. Although they are not exhaustive, the machines you will discover on this site will give you an idea of our know-how.

Modularity and adaptability are the key words of the MIB by Numalliance offer. This innovative concept allows us to supply customised hydraulic presses while reducing the costs of design and engineering. The standard models of MIB by Numalliance can be used for hydraulic presses for cutting or assembly, forming and straightening presses, setting and crimping lines, as well as other models as required.

The offer includes technical solutions for changing on-board tools and for rapid loading and unloading of the press. By choosing a MIB by Numalliance model, companies benefit from follow-up, including commissioning, maintenance and training.

MIB by Numalliance has three types of standard hydraulic presses, the technology of which can be combined and adapted to offer equipment tailored to the needs of companies. From our arch presses, gooseneck models and column presses, MIB by Numalliance creates unique hydraulic equipment according to the specifications given at the time of the order. Among the elements that can be adapted on a case-by-case basis are the tonnage of the customised hydraulic press, its equipment and the dimensions.
