Elite make a Demo Aluminium Extrusion Die!

Demonstration aluminium extrusion die

This is a small aluminium extrusion die set that Elite Extrusion Die manufactured for a customer for demonstration purposes.

The diameter of the porthole die is 120mm x 100mm thick. Manufactured from H13 steel and heat-treated as if it were a real production die.

Once made, it was then EDM cut in such a way that it can be separated into two or four part. It slides up to reveal the internal details such as welding chamber and mandrel core, etc.

Our customer will now be able to clearly demonstrate how a hole is put into an extrusion profile!
