Extrusion, Tube-making and Cold Drawing

Chapter

Abstract

The process of extrusion consists of forcing a billet of metal through a die to produce a continuous length of constant cross section corresponding to the shape of the die orifice. A simple analogy of the process is the squeezing of toothpaste from a tube. Hot extrusion only will be described in this chapter: cold extrusion will be dealt with in Chapter 6 with cold forging processes.
