ABSTRACT --- The three-puller system with a fast quench permit runway-to-stretcher
direct transfer fixed translation system (FTS) is the state-of-the-art solution for the
transfer of the extruded bars from the die exit to the stretching step, which keeps them
at a correct tension to avoid distortion and permit automatic stretching. This FTS picks
up the extruded bars and deposits them directly in the stretcher jaws having quenched
the profiles at a very fast rate in an air/water tunnel, immediately after their exit from the
press. FTS is a new concept in automation that allows stretching of all types of profiles.
