Our diverse extrusion services can meet the needs of virtually any application. Our highly qualified staff of engineers and production developers can assist with specifications for your material process and design needs.

Materials & Specifications

Elmet Technologies (formerly H.C. Starck Solutions) uses a 5,000 metric ton extrusion press to extrude rods, tubes and complex cross sections ranging from 152-432mm (6 – 17in) in diameter. Billets can be preheated to temperatures up to 1925°C (3500°F) using gas-fired or inert atmosphere induction furnaces. Extrusion ram speed can be controlled between 1.27-203mm/sec (0.05-8.0 in/sec).

We work with a broad range of materials including many which are traditionally difficult to extrude, such as the following:

Copper and Copper Alloys

C10100 | C15000 | C16200 | C17200 | C17500 | C18200
C63000 | C70600 | C71500 | Copper – Niobium


Stainless Steels

300 series | 400 series | 15-5 PH | 17-4 PH | Duplex


Nickel Base Alloys
