What is Impact Extrusion?
Impact extrusion is one of the cold forming processes used for the larger sized products. The process starts with a volume controlled "slug" contrary to the cold heading process that starts with a wire.
Stalcop impact extrusion capabilities currently include diameters up to 4 inches and lengths up to 16 inches handling volumes from 1,000 to multi-million pieces per year. These capabilities are not restrictive as our investment focus on new opportunities to meet our customers needs.
The most common impact extrusion techniques are — "forward extrusions" and "backward extrusions." The creativity the design engineer can enable both of the techniques to be used simultaneously to minimize production cost as many designs include both extrusions.Top of Page
