Extrusion

Image of Extrusion MachineExtrusion is a process to produce continuous material such as wire, tube, tape, channel, etc. An extrusion press applies hundreds of tons of pressure to the metal which is located in a chamber behind a die set.

Vulcan GMS offers a variety of secondary operations to extrusion including automated cut off, punch press, stamping, forming, machining, chopping/cut off and more. We can use the extrusion process to produce finished products or component parts for your products or assemblies. Vulcan can extrude lead, tin and bismuth or alloys of these metals.

Based on your profile requirements, extrusion can hold tight tolerances. The tolerance is controlled by the die and how well the die is maintained. Please contact Vulcan to review your requirements and discuss solutions we can supply.
