It looks so easy when the extrusion process is portrayed as an overgrown playdoh press.  But there is a lot that happens and must be considered when a heated aluminum cylinder (a billet) is loaded into an extrusion press and forced through a small, complex, opening at extreme pressure.
This webinar will cover the fundamentals of aluminum metal flow through the container and the die allowing a comprehensive understanding of the challenges in ensuring prescribed quality and part performance.  Particular attention will be paid to welds – both billet-to-billet and in the formation of hollow shapes – and to the challenges of wider profiles.  We will also review the press practices that can be the root causes of potential defects and how they are managed for various extrusion applications.
