extrutec received several orders from outside of Europe in the business year of 2014 as well. In addition to an 11" log heating system with hot saw from Hydro Aluminium in China, a fully automatic overhead die heater system from Yasuda Metals in Japan stands out in particular. Thöni from Telfs, Austria, placed another order with extrutec for a state-of-the-art profile cooling system.
Replacement for old Technologies & Further Orders
ASAS from Turkey charged extrutec with the delivery of a 14" hot saw. It is particularly worth mentioning that extrutec is going to replace its own log hot shears from 2008 with this system. At the same time, however, this development clearly reflects that the technology of cutting heated aluminium rods with hot shears has been replaced for good.
