300 Ton Horizontal Extrusion Press

Our 300 TON HORIZONTAL EXTRUSION PRESS is Australia's only large scale research-dedicated extrusion facility. We can develop new light metal alloys, metal-matrix composites, micro-truss structures and powder-base metals for structural and biomedical applications. This facility is a result of successful Australian Research Council LEIF grant.
