Manufacture of Profiles

The facility includes a 660 ton vertical press, 1000 and 3150 ton horizontal presses, two-high straightening machine for bars and extruded tubes, 50 and 250 ton stretching machines for shapes, 160 and 3000 ton hydraulic presses for straightening short tubes and tubular forgings, and a 315 ton press with pulsating load for the sizing of thin-walled shapes.

The facility is capable of producing extruded semi-products of titanium alloys and special steels including:

Extruded shape:
- Structural thick shapes as well as thick sections for welding rings with a cross-sectional area up to 3.05 sq. inch and minimum wall thickness of 0.393 inch;
- Structural thin shapes with a cross-sectional area up to 1.22 sq. inch and minimum wall thickness from 0.06 to 0.175 inch. Maximum length of extruded shapes is 13.12 feet.

Extruded bar and intermediate billet:
- Bars to produce parts with a diameter range from 0.59 to 5.68 inch.
- Intermediate billets with a diameter range from 2.95 to 6.3 inch. Bar and billet length from 7.2 up to 21 feet.

Extruded tube:
- Extruded tubes for subsequent machining with an outside diameter range from 1.77 to 6.3 inch, wall thickness from 0.275 to 1.377 inch and length from 2.62 to 9.84 feet.

Tubular billet:
- Tubular billets for subsequent machining, including billets for aircraft engine shafts. Tubular billets are manufactured with a uniform cross section or variable cross section, with an outside diameter up to 10.82 inch, wall thickness from 0.5 to 2 inch and length up to 3.93 feet.

Extruded products are used to manufacture aircraft components, hydraulic cylinders, welded rings and aircraft engine shafts.

Extruded shapes are produced from domestic titanium alloys and special steels to domestic and international standards.

Extruded tubes and tubular forgings are produced from titanium alloys to international standards ASTM B861, AMS 4935 and AMS 4928.
