Rick Gellen, Area Sales Manager Industry at Mifa Aluminium bv. I am working at Mifa for 11 years and have experienced that the possibilities of precision extrusion are quite unfamiliar. Many engineers / designers / purchaser don’t know the possibilities and therefore do not think in the way of (precision) extrusion. It is really satisfying to tell and show these people another way of thinking and to create an optimal product together, which even can help in reducing the CO2 footprint. With my presentation I will give you a short insight in our world of precision extrusion.
