Aluminum Extrusions

The process of extruding aluminum has been compared to squeezing toothpaste from a tube where the paste takes the shape of the tube opening. An aluminum billet, heated to between 800-1000F, is placed in the extrusion press and is forced under pressure through a die. The die may contain one or more openings having the desired finished cross section. Limitations on length of parts are the result of the weight of the extrusion billet and/or capacity of the down stream extrusion equipment. KEYWORDS for this process: extruded shapes, extruders
