Hydrostatic Extrusion of Metals
This paper is a review of the state of the art in the hydrostatic extrusion of metals. Hydrostatic extrusion may be defined as a process in which an elongated product is formed by pushing a material through a suitably shaped orifice under the action of fluid pressure. The presence of an extrusion fluid reduces container friction and provides improved lubrication in the die. Longer billets may therefore be extruded at lesser pressures as compared to those required in conventional extrusion.
