The Process of Achieving Extrusion Excellence

Srimay Basu and Sultan Al Sabri, Dubai Aluminium Co. Ltd., Dubai, UAE

Track: EXTRUSION/DIE, PRACTICAL - Extrusion Process

ABSTRACT --- The growth and developments in the extrusion industry are as
dynamic as never before. New extruders are joining well-established extruders in
the market, thereby further increasing consolidation pressure. Apparently, this
will lead extruders to develop the objective of strengthening their
competitiveness by pushing the envelope of overall optimization. As process and
equipment are the major influences, every attempt has been made in this paper to
elaborate and summarize those experiences and developments, which may not be
very new or revolutionary but are made available under one banner of achieving
excellence. We have aimed to focus on some key areas like metal, dies, process
itself, heat treatments, surface treatments, and even packing. All efforts are given
to offer our own opinions on the relevance and value that will catalyze fresh and
original thinking. Referred examples and any case studies are mainly from the
experience of 6xxx alloy extrusions.
