AEC to Conduct Class Covering Basics of Aluminum Extrusion Process

The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) has announced it will conduct its class "Extrusion Excellence: Applied Fundamentals for Aluminum Extruders" on October 19, 2006, at the Comfort Inn Cleveland Airport Hotel in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. The Extrusion Excellence short course is an intensive one-day educational class offering insights into the fundamentals of the aluminum extrusion process from an engineering perspective.

"Since its introduction in 2004, this class on the basics of the aluminum extrusion process has become one of AEC's most popular educational events," noted council president Rand Baldwin, CAE.

The course is taught by Dr. Wojciech Misiolek, director of the Institute for Metal Forming (IMF) at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. Dr. Misiolek, Fellow of ASM International, is an expert in the field who works closely with the industry to help propel the aluminum extrusion process forward. According to information provided by AEC, the course material is updated constantly, offering the latest industry information and advances to course participants.

The Extrusion Excellence short course is intended for professionals involved in the production of aluminum profiles who may not have had any formal training in the engineering and metallurgical aspects of the extrusion process. The curriculum is appropriate for experienced production personnel, as well as those new to the industry, according to the council.

"The concepts taught in the course cover the entire aluminum extrusion process-from billet production, through the press, to the runout table and beyond," said Baldwin. "Dr. Misiolek tackles the complete aluminum extrusion process and explains it all in a way that is easy to understand."
