Manufacture of extrusions

VSMPO is capable of producing more than 800 different extruded mill products of various configurations, including:

  • Continuous Ribbed Panels: from 400 mm to 1279 mm (15.7-50.4inch) wide
  • Heavy End Panels: Up to 900 mm (35.4 inch) wide (comprises two portions: ribbed and heavy-end);
  • Shapes: continuous cross section area up to 950 cm² (147.3 sq. inches)

The maximum length of heat-treated panels and shapes is 13,000 mm (42.6 feet), without heat treatment -30,000 mm (98.4 feet):

  • Light Section with circle diameter range from 20 mm to 200 mm (0.787-7.87 inch), minimum wall thickness -1.2 mm (0.05 inch);
  • Seamless Tubes with an outside diameter range from 100 mm to 800 mm (3.94-31.5 inch), maximum cross-section area 850cm² (131.8sq.inch)
  • Welded Tubes of 1000 and 6000 series alloys with an outside diameter range from 12 mm to 100 mm (0.47-3.94 inch), wall thickness from 2 mm to 30 mm (0.079-1.18 inch).

The extrusion facility includes a complete range of horizontal presses including 19,600, 12,250,3,400,3,090 and 980 ton plus a modern computer controlled 2,350 ton press, which are used for the production of large extrusions for aircraft application and complex hollow thin-wall shapes for special industrial applications, as well as tubing for the nuclear industry.
