Extrusion Machining centers from MODIG

MODIG has a wealth of experience developing and constructing extrusion processing solutions for part and component manufacturing. We take pride in launching the world’s first rotary table extrusion processing machine in 1989. Since then, we have consistently pushed the boundaries of what is achievable in extrusion part machining with our technological expertise. As a result, today, we offer some of the fastest and most reliable machines for processing aluminum profiles. Our production solutions for extrusion machining are up to 40 – 70 percent faster than competing five-axis standard machines while saving 20 percent more raw material.

Our solutions come equipped with two [HHV2] or three rotary tables [HHV3] and one or two spindles [HHV DUO], allowing for the processing of straight bars and extrusions made of aluminum and composite materials.

What is an extrusion machining center?

The aluminum extrusion process and why you use extrusion machining

The extrusion process

Extrusion is a metal-forming manufacturing method to create objects with specific cross-sectional profiles. To start the process, a pre-shaped die presses a heated, cylindrical aluminum bar called an ingot. The die works as a tool to shape the aluminum as it is pushed through the matrix, similar to squeezing toothpaste out of a tube.

When the profile leaves the tool, air or water cools it down. Then, the shapes are stretched while they are still ’soft.’ This way, stresses are released in the aluminum, and the profiles finally get the correct dimensions. The profiles are cut and get their final strength through hot or cold aging. The next step is finishing or surface treatment to enhance appearance and corrosion properties. After the surface treatment, you can use an extrusion machining center to process the profile further and produce parts according to your specific requirements.

Extrusion machining center

An extrusion machining center is a machine you use to cut and shape the extrusion into a finished part precisely. To achieve the shape you desire with pockets, holes, and other features, the extrusion machining center utilizes techniques such as sawing, deburring, drilling, turning, milling, and tapping. Its responsibility is to ensure the extrusion is cut and shaped perfectly.

In MODIG’s machine portfolio, you will find several machining centers for extrusion machining, HHV2, HHV3 and HHV DUO. Our machines are known for their speed and reliability in this type of machining. MODIG’s machines can significantly reduce production time and minimize waste during processing, making them a top choice on the market. Contact us to learn more about the MODIG solutions!
