Extrusion

Extrusion is a process used to create objects of a fixed cross sectional profile.

A material is pushed through a die of the desired cross-section. The two main advantages of this process over other manufacturing processes are its ability to create very complex cross-sections, and to work materials that are brittle, because the material only encounters compressive and sheer stresses. It also forms parts with an excellent surface finish

The most common types of extrusion are

  • PROFILE EXTRUSION
  • CO-EXTRUSION
  • POST CO-EXTRUSION
  • FOAM EXTRUSION
