Dummy Block for better extrusion:
The dummy block is a critical element of the aluminium extrusion production process. Its successful operation depends on a number of factors.For example, press alignment (both thermal and physical), lubrication, maintenance and so on.
The most important factor in the effective operation of any dummy block is its efficient interaction with a round, straight, thermally and therefore dimensionally stable container.
The function of the dummy block is the extension of the ram or stem, which pushes the softened alloy through the die. There are a number of functions that must be satisfied by an effective dummy block:
Benefits of the Attard Dummy Block:
With these dummy blocks, Attard again sets a new standard of excellence in the extrusion industry. Results may vary depending on individual press characteristics and setup.
