THE paper began with a brief historical survey of the cold extrusion process since its first practical use over sixty years ago. The extrusion of special materials such as molybdenum, beryllium and zirconium was described. The problems relating to the production of suitable tooling for the extrusion process and the preparation, heat treatment and lubrication of extrusion billets and slugs were discussed. Following discussion on temperature and speed effects, prestrain of work material, presses for extrusion and component design, the paper concluded with an outline of the applications and advantages of the cold extrusion process.
