Extrusion is a process of shaping a mass, bringing them out from an opening profiles for elaborate and complicated design. In the case of the aluminum extrusion, is carried out with alloys such as aluminum 6063-T5, 6063-T6, 6061-T6, 6005-T5, etc. Aluminum may be of first use, and also recycled.
The products made by this process are varied: industrial aluminum profiles, construction, round and square tubes, channels, etc.. At first glance, we can see the result of this procedure in the installation of aluminum doors and windows.
The aluminum extrusion process consists of three phases.
From a billet aluminum, primary or secondary, it starts casting parts up to 7 meters in length.
Aluminum billet, previously preheated and through an array, is passed to a high pressure between 1600 and 6500 tons. The opening of the matrix corresponds to the transverse profile extrusion, and has the desired pattern.
- Cool down and stretch
When the profile leaves the press, this piece is cooled by air or water. Were stretched and cut into appropriate lengths.
Using artificial aging techniques to achieve the necessary strength for later use and application.
Maintenance is very important in the process of extrusion products. For this reason, avoid storing it with chemical materials or wet materials
