  • Vertical Milling – three axis, high rpm cutting capabilities

Metallurgy

As important as manufacture and design, the selection of a suitable material for your extrusion process is critical. Concern must be given to a variety of steel properties including yield, tensile strength, elongation, and ductility to name a few. With over sixty years of manufacturing experience, Diamond America has developed an extensive database of metallurgical solutions for all types of processing problems.
