Extrusion Presses

Here you can see photographs and videos and hear memories of Extrusion Presses made by Fielding and Platt.

Extrusion Presses force metal billets through a die in order to make products with long, thin shapes such as tubing, section, or wire.

If you remember designing, machining, fitting, installing or maintaining any of the presses here please share your memories of working on them. You can do this by clicking on the machine you worked on, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the words Add a comment about this page.
