Metalba Aluminium S.p.A. - Products
EXTRUDED products

A wide range of products is available in the shape of bars, solid and hollow sections, round tubes and custom shapes by means of reversing extrusion; and by means of mandrel, floating mandrel or bridge dies. Metalba Aluminium S.p.A. is equipped with five modern hydraulic control presses with a production capacity of 3.500 t/month:

  • one 1800 t direct press for extrusion of small-sized tubes and sections where special tolerance standards are required (the press was installed in April 2007);
  • one 2300 t direct press for extrusion of alloys with medium mechanical resistance, used with porthole dies as well;
  • a very modern extrusion plant with a 4500 t for round, square and rectangular-section bars along with medium and big-sized sections according to customer’s drawing (to be installed in February 2008);
  • a 2500 t indirect press equipped with scalper and automatic packaging machine; this equipment can satisfy high quality standards particularly required by the Automotive sector;
  • a 2200 t indirect press equipped with scalper and 500 t mandrel.

Size capacity (special or above the requested size)
Solid: from 10mm to 180mm diameter
Mandrel-extruded tube: from 30x2mm to 93x3mm diameter
Shape to design: from 10 mm. to a max. of 180 mm inner diameter
DRAWN products

They are obtained from blanks extruded with both direct presses (that is, with floating mandrel or bridge dies ) and with indirect presses and then drawn on straight benches. The tubes can be either non-welded and extruded with mandrel and floating mandrel, or bridge-die tubes (especially for custom hollow sections).

Working by cold plastic deformation and other suitable heat treatments ensure that high quality standards are met, whilst complying with the applicable product standards.


Size capacity (special or above the requested size)
Solid: from 8mm to 60mm diameter
Tube: from 10x0,9mm to 70x1mm size
Shape to design: from 10 mm. to a max. of 60 mm inner diameter
