Process Variables in Direct Extrusion Figure 15.4 Process variables in direct extrusion. The die angle, reduction in cross-section, extrusion speed, billet temperature, and lubrication all affect the extrusion pressure. Extrusion Analysis
Extrusion ratio, rx =
Ao Af Assuming all sections are circular, ideal deformation, no friction, no redundant work: = ln rx p = Y f ln rx Ram pressure p = Y f (a + b ln rx ) Taking into account friction, where a =0.8 and b =1.2 to 1.5. Extrusion Analysis
For direct extrusion, additional pressure, pf, required by the extruder to overcome the wall friction is related as p f Do2 follows:
4 = pcDo L For the worst case that the friction shear stress at the wall equals to the shear yield strength of the work pc = Ys metal:
p f = Yf 2L Do The additional pressure: The total ram pressure: The power required: 2L p = Yf x + Do P = Fv Extrusion Dies
For the case of non-circular extruded section, a shape factor has to be introduced:
C K x = 0.98 + 0.02 x C c
2.25 where Kx = shape factor Cx = perimeter of...
