Vitex Extrusion to Host Webinar with Aluminum Extruders Council and Design World to Help Product Design Engineers Understand Extrusion Die Tooling Costs

FRANKLIN, N.H. - April 17, 2019 - Amzeal -- Vitex, a leading aluminum extrusion manufacturer, announced it will host a webinar with the Aluminum Extruders Council and Design World titled Aluminum Extrusion Dies: 7 Factors that Drive Up Die Tooling Costs. This complimentary event will take place Wednesday, May 8 at 2:00 pm ET, and will feature Carl Meyerhoefer, Extrusion Director for Vitex Extrusion and Eric Becker, Director of Business Development for Vitex Extrusion.

Despite the many unique advantages of aluminum extrusion manufacturing, many product designers and development engineers still overlook it in favor of what they believe to be cheaper options. This decision is often based solely on the initial cost of an extrusion die. Most engineers don't consider or are simply unaware that costs and lead times for die tooling can vary dramatically based on a handful of design decisions they make. Attendees will learn of seven factors that impact the cost of an extrusion die, including profile complexity, tolerance requirements, and alloy used. The webinar will cover extrusion die types, design considerations to drive down tooling costs, and how best to engage an extrusion manufacturing partner.
