Extrusion is the process through which various objects that have a cross-sectional profile are produced. During the extrusion process, a metallic material is passed through a die which has a desired cross-sectional profile so as to come up with the desired shape and profiles. There are several reasons why this process is highly preferred. These include the ability of the process to create very complex cross-sections and also the ability to work with materials that are brittle. The process of extrusion can be continuous and thus producing long indefinite materials or it could be semi-continuous producing many pieces. The process can be done with a hot or cold material depending on what you desire. In metals, Aluminium extrusion is one of the most common ways of providing materials of complex cross-sectional profiles.
For hot Aluminium extrusion, you begin by heating the Aluminium before it is pressed on the die. This is different from cold extrusion where the extrusion is done at room temperature. The advantage of cold extrusion is the lack of oxidation and the higher strength due to cold working, better finish, and faster extrusion speed as well as closer tolerances. Cold extrusion is also not as expensive as hot extrusion. Warm extrusion is also used but while it is done at above room temperatures, the heat is below the recrystalisation level.
The aluminium extrusion process can be used to produce many products. Some of these products are used in industries, others in homes while others are important for building and construction industry. There are many companies that are involved in the aluminium extrusion process to produce different products. The quality of the products produced should be one of the most important aspects to consider when selecting a company to provide you with extrusion products. It is important to consider the technical capacity and reputation of the company before buying their products.
One of the most recognised companies that are involved in aluminium extrusion and producing aluminium products, in general, is Tostem Thai. The company is one of the best extrusion companies in Japan. It has operations in Japan, Thailand and other parts of Asia. Having been in the industry for long and also having established a solid reputation for producing quality products, the company has provided their products to many companies and households in Japan and Thailand. The company has highly trained and experienced professional in its employment that are leaders in producing aluminum products. With a lot of investment in research and development, the company is able to customise and tailor their products towards the needs of their customers. The company prides itself in being flexible and responsive to their customers’ needs.
TOSTEM THAI has established significant quality controls to ensure that their products are of top quality. They aim to become a global leader in the production of aluminium products. Their aluminum products are used by companies in different industries including automotive, electrical and electronics industry as well as building and construction industry. In addition, their products are also used in people’s homes, for example on windows and doors.
