The dummy block is a critical element of the aluminum extrusion production process. Its successful operation depends on a number of factors. For example, press alignment (both thermal and physical), lubrication, maintenance and so on. The most important factor in the effective operation of any dummy block is its efficient interaction with a round, straight, thermally and therefore dimensionally stable container.
With these Dummy Blocks, CASTOOL again sets a new standard of excellence in the extrusion industry.
It allows to :
- Reduce scrap, due to back end blisters and surface defects
- Reduce cost of operation
- Reduce downtimes
- Increase productivity
- Increase operating life
