The extrusion of aluminium by press is a plastic deformation process that moulds by compression the hot aluminium billet. The profiles resulting from the billet that flow down the mould at a temperature of 500ºC are laid out, cooled and stretched on a roller bed, subsequently moving towards the saw where they are cut to the desired size.
Subsequently the profiles, automatically stacked in containers, are introduced into computer-controlled tempering furnaces, where they mature and are given the necessary hardness for use, through specific temperatures for each profile.
Once this process is finalised, the profile is ready to be subjected to machine manipulation and surface treatments.
