Continuous Rotary Extrusion (CRE) is a significantly more efficient solid and hollow profile production process compared to traditional rolling and drawing. For the manufacture a broad range of applications such as Copper busbar and Aluminium tube and conductor products, CRE processing delivers a number of important benefits including:
- Continuous, more efficient extrusion
- Lower capital costs
- Fewer maintenance requirements
- Lower production costs per tonne
- Greater production flexibility – Copper and Aluminium can be run on the same machine with a simple tool change
In many cases, manufacturers find the efficiency of the CRE process makes in-house profile production a more economically efficient option. As the world’s leading supplier of fully integrated CRE production lines, Meltech’s engineers have unrivalled experience in advising and supporting customers to set up highly productive in-house extrusion processing.
