Taber Extrusions Micro-Extrusion Capabilities

Our micro-extrusion manufacturing lines have a production envelope with a circle size of 3 inches or less and a weight per foot of 1 lb. or less. For comparison, the 8,600 ton press in Taber’s Russellville facility produces profiles with a minimum weight of 4 lbs. per foot.

Unlike traditional extrusion presses, these micro-extrusion presses are built to allow for the production of extrusions with wall thicknesses of 0.010 inches and tolerance capabilities of +/- 0.001 inches. These miniature extrusion production centers allow designers and engineers the freedom to engineer profiles that are un-extrudable through conventional presses.

Industries most commonly using micro-extrusions include :

computer

electronics

aerospace

medical

industrial

military

Cost-Effective Manufacturing
