Aluminum extrusion technology offers the advantages of high productivity and high precision. As a result, extrusion is commonly used in the production of semi-finished aluminum alloy products. This method involves heating aluminum ingots until they soften, then using an extrusion press and a die to extrude the alloy into profiles with the desired cross section. The extruded aluminum profiles can be solid or hollow shape, tubing, rod or plate. As long as the cross-sectional shape is uniform, most wrought aluminum alloy, can be shaped via extrusion.
