TL;DR: Extrusion is the plastic flow of metal in the direction of the acting pressure as discussed by the authors, which is now widely used in obtaining rods, tubes and profile shapes, and the main advantages of the extrusion processes are: good material economy, few operations needed as compared with other technologies, good dimensional tolerances and high mechanical properties, even without heat treatment.
