    Custom Extrusions for Maximum Yield

    Production-Ready Parts from a Reliable Engineering Components Manufacturer

    Goudsmit UK produce bespoke extrusions based on your design and volume requirements. Using our advanced capabilities and over 20 years experience, we assist you in minimising material content while ensuring that the extruded form (once employed in the application) will work below the maximum yield strength. When combined with our superior quality and complementary services, you are assured that your parts will be production-ready.

    Goudsmit UK use what is known as the direct extrusion process. This is where the cylindrical aluminium alloy billets are heated to a temperature between 450 and 500 degrees before being loaded into a container, and billet is squeezed through the die using ram pressures of up to 600MPa. The die is supported by a series of black dies ad bolsters so that the main press load is transferred to a front platen. You can find more information on extruded parts production in our products and services brochure.
