Keeping the processing temperature to above the re-crystalline temperature. Reducing the ram force, increasing the ram speed, and reduction of grain flow characteristics. Controlling the cooling is a problem. Glass may be used as a lubricant. Cold extrusion
Often used to produce discrete parts. Increase strength due to strain hardening, close tolerances, improved surface finish, absence of oxide layer and high production rates. Extrusion Temperature Ranges for Various Metals
