Importance of Oil Cleanliness on Aluminum Extrusion Presses

The use of aluminum extrusion in product design and manufacturing has increased significantly in recent decades. In the extrusion press, the hydraulic system is a critical component. Uptime of the press is essential for production, and hydraulic failures are the most common cause of downtime. Studies show that 80 percent of these hydraulic failures are caused by contaminated fluid.
