Brass Rod Manufacturing Extrusion
Brass billets are heated at the extrusion press and extruded through one of our two presses. The press extrudes the brass through a die to make it into the shape and size requested. Depending on the size of the rod, it will be extruded as straight rod or coil. The brass rod is then cooled and sent through a pickling process to remove the oxidation from the rod surface.
In 2000 Chase Brass implemented Project 400, by adding a second press, in order to create production flexibility and to meet increasing brass rod demand.
