An investigation has been made of the effects of temperature and speed at various extrusion ratios in warm forward extrusion of steels. The steels selected for warm extrusion were En2E, En8, En19 and En30B. The extrusions were performed in the temperature range of 20 °C to 800 °C. The properties of the extruded products have also been examined.
