Nearer to net steel and titanium extrusions

Advantages of nearer to net extrusions

Steel and Titanium extrusions provide advantages not offered by alternative methods such as forgings, castings, and machining from bar or plate stock. Economic advantages include minimal tooling costs, reduced material usage, lower parts count resulting from the ability to extrude complex shapes over length in a single operation and less machining and finishing operations.

Nearer to net steel and titanium extrusions guarantee many benefits during the production of finished products

The quality benefits of the extrusion process include improved surface quality and superior flatness and straightness, which is especially critical for long-length structural operations.

Starting from the extruded profile rather than from the solid bar, production costs can be significantly reduced, reducing the steps necessary to obtain the finished product and the scrap.
