ALUMINUM EXTRUSION

Extrusion is an aluminum-transformation process that delivers infinite possibilities in the design of structural and architectural profiles. The aluminum-extrusion process uses flexible low-cost tooling that enables fast product development and prototyping and the production of a wide range of shapes. For aluminum-extrusion companies, the right choice of materials and the correct heat treatments are essential to lengthen the useful life of dies. Nitrex solutions effectively improve the wear resistance of dies to withstand thermal and mechanical stresses, giving maximum die life, throughput, and quality of extruded products.
