During hot extrusion a round steel billet is pre-heated and, after leaving the furnace, is pushed through a forming die into a profile bar using a ram with an extrusion force of 2,200 tons. Hot extrusion can be used to make complex profile shapes even using metals which are difficult to form. In addition, small lot sizes can be produced economically.
“Form is not the aim of our work, it is the result.”
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
In planning façades, architects not only impose ever greater demands on the flexible adaptation of the materials, but also on individual desires for design. Within the realm of the production possibilities, special steel profiles from MONTANSTAHL can fulfil almost all the requirements for freedom of design, construction physics and architecture as part of an overall ecological concept.
We develop our special profiles in close co-operation with our customers offering above all solutions for unique design and functional challenges.
