Extrusion

  • This state-of-the-art plant features three extrusion lines with 3250- and 1800-tonne presses, automatic bar handling systems and computerised technology for precise profile geometry detection.

  • During the engineering phase of the entire structure, special attention was paid to the synergy aspects of the extrusion lines in order to guarantee the highest possible flexibility and make it concretely usable in terms of service to all our customers.

  • Since 2020, we have been using a scanner that allows us to detect any errors in dimensions or flatness directly at the extrusion stage so that corrective action can be taken quickly and rejects avoided, ensuring maximum precision at all times.

P1 Line 1800 Tonnes

The Extrusion Line with 1800-tonne press is characterised by a strong automatic management of extrusion parameters, profile movements and artificial ageing cycles.

P1 Line 1800 Tonnes

P2 Line 3250 Tonnes

The plant features a 3250-tonne press, billet cutting with circular blade (first in Italy), air and water cooling (96m3/h), cutting on the fly, and automatic handling through to the packing area.

Automatic Handling

Automatic Handling

Profile handling on the extrusion line is fully automatic in order to minimise the risk of profile damage.

Ageing furnaces

Ageing furnaces

The mechanical properties of the profiles are guaranteed by a powerful intensive cooling plant and ageing furnaces for bars up to 15 metres long with automatic cycle and handling management

Packaging

Packaging

We package the profiles according to your requirements with the same care we take in producing them. Our state-of-the-art packaging systems will enable you to receive your profiles in the best condition.

Aluminium alloy

The combination of alloy type and hardening process significantly influences the physical and mechanical properties of aluminium profiles. Our team of highly qualified technicians will support you in choosing the most suitable type of alloy for you based on your needs for mechanical strength, machinability, weldability, conductivity, ductility, surface quality and corrosion resistance. In the diagram shown here, you will find the chemical composition drawn up according to UNI EN 573-3 of the types of alloy we most commonly use.
