Extrusion

Castool’s Systems Approach – No single component of the extrusion production process should be examined or evaluated individually. Only if the entire process is considered as an integrated system, with all parts working together in common cause, can maximum efficiency be approached.

Aluject Controller

The Alu-ject Controller mixes and measures the precise amount of lubricant needed by the Sprayer

Shear Blades

During the extrusion stroke, as the ram and the dummy block press the billet through the container, the oxides and other impurities from the skin of the billet are accumulated in the dead metal zone.  The dead metal zone, which is full of impurities, must be sheared off before the next billet is loaded.

Cleanout Block

After each change of alloy, and also after every shift, a clean-out block should be used to remove the build-up of oxide skin from the liner of the container

Dummy Block

The most important factor in the effective operation of any dummy block is its’ efficient interaction with a round, straight, thermally, and therefore dimensionally, stable container

Master Controller

Inputting the die size and target temperature will select the most appropriate program to heat that particular die. It will use the necessary heat head and soak time to heat the die most efficiently, and with the accuracy required.
