Looking for book(s) on aluminum extrusion process

Looking for book(s) on aluminum extrusion process

Looking for book(s) on aluminum extrusion process

Good Morning,
I'm just starting the extrusion learning process.
I'm looking for reference materials, books, on the Aluminum Extrusion Process.
I've found one from ASM titled Aluminum Extrusion Technology.
Are there any others out there.
Looking for basic information on the process, what affects it , the tooling , design and tooling tolerances, etc.
Thanks for your information.

RE: Looking for book(s) on aluminum extrusion process

ALCOA produced and published some very good books working with Aluminum and had a very good one on extrusions.  You might try the old book stores as I think they are out of print.   

RE: Looking for book(s) on aluminum extrusion process

I have a basic design manual for aluminum extrusions published by the company I work for that we send out to customers on occasion.  I have some of the more informative sections in pdf format so they are e-mailable.  If you are interested, e-mail me at joules1971@yahoo.com.
