Investigations into Continuous Extrusion

  • B. Lengyel

Apparatus has been built for experimental investigations into continuous extrusion. Two materials have been extruded at various ratios and correlation between the process parameters has been found by the simultaneous recording of extrusion load, displacement of the feed stock and power requirement.

While the method which was investigated is primarily suitable for the extrusion of wire, further considerations indicate that the continuous hot extrusion of large billets into rods and tubes of various sections might also become feasible.
