Aluminium Extrusion Plant

Aluminium Extrusion Plant
Heated billets of aluminium alloy are pushed through a preheated die to create the required profile. Quenching is vital to ensure the finished product has the correct properties.

The process requires accurate temperature monitoring of both the billet and die, for efficiency and to prevent damage to the press. Quench and extrusion monitoring ensures consistent product quality.

With decades of experience and a global reputation for excellence, AMETEK Land provides dedicated solutions for each stage of the process. Our products offer the precision and rapid response your operation requires.

    • Aluminium Extrusion - Die
      Die

      The SPOT R160 thermometer measures the temperature of the die before press loading. This stops hot aluminium solidifying on contact with an under-heated die, causing a significant process stoppage.
