What Do We Understand by Extrusion in Ceramics?

  • Frank HändleEmail author


The position of extrusion as a major method of shaping in ceramics is defined and evaluated. The process of extrusion in ceramics and the different types of extrusion units are classified focusing on extrusion by single-screw extruders. The different configurations of screw extruders, the main criteria for ceramic extrusion and the relevant components of an extrusion unit are outlined.
