What is the Aluminum Extrusion Process?

Aluminum Extrusions shapes aluminum by heating it and forcing it to smash through a drilled opening with a pressure-driven blow. The resulting expelled material is a piece of long, similar-shaped material that can be passed on to another person. After the expulsion, the hot aluminum profile must first be extinguished and then cooled.

Extrusion can be compared to crushing toothpaste from a tube. The constant stream of toothpaste becomes the state known as the round trip. Aluminum Extrusion is the same. You can visit macrodynepress.com/hydraulic-presses/extrusion-presses/ to know more about extrusion presses.

Aluminum Extrusion Process

Extrusion Die is Prepared

The dust is made from H13 steel and has a round molded bite. If one is not available, the dust is pulled from a distribution center such as the one shown here.

To extend its life and ensure a consistent metal stream, the pass-on must first be preheated to between 500-450 degrees Celsius before Extrusion. Once the dust has been preheated it can be stored in the extrusion press.

Preheated Aluminum Billet

Similar to the previous one, it is heated in a broiler to 400-500 degrees Celsius. This makes it strong enough, but not liquid enough for Extrusion.

Inject Billet Material into the container

The Extrusion press is currently stacking the flexible billet. It is subject to the water slam which can apply up to 15,000 tonnes of strain. As the smash applies pressure, the billet material is driven into its holder in the extrusion press.

The temperature at which extrusions can be cooled is Room Temperature

Table-length Extrusions can be precisely moved from the run-out to a cooling table following shearing. This table is similar to the one shown here. The profiles should remain at room temperature. When they reach room temperature, they should be extended.
