A 17,000-ton hydrostatic extrusion press was designed to pressurize both a 12-inch bore, 250,000 psi, multi-ring container, 10 feet long and a 6- inch bore, 450,000 psi, fluid-supported container, 3 feet long. A stress analysis was made of hydrostatic extrusion containers, stems, and dies. An economic analysis indicated that there were important areas, such as the production of tubes and shapes, in which hydrostatic extrusion techniques could produce close-tolerance products at a lower cost than conventional processing.
