EXAL manufactures a variety of open market (stock) and custom containers and bottles in a multitude of shapes using reverse impact extrusion. Impact extrusion is a process by which metal products are made from a soft metal-aluminum, lead or tin-slug. A container cylinder is formed inside a confining die from the cold slug by a single stroke application of force through a punch causing the metal to flow around the punch. The punch is attached to a hydraulic press generating forces up to 250 psi.
Impact extrusion lines for rigid aluminum can manufacturing are complex, incorporating many manufacturing processes into a single continuous production line that transforms an aluminum slug into a dynamic, decorated, finished aluminum container.
Impact extruded container line processes include:
