Abstract

Abstract—Extrusion is a critical process which involves a number of steps like casting of logs, heating of logs and dies to the preset temperature. Maintaining extrusion pressure and temperature at the press plays a major role in extruding of profiles. Precautionary measures have to be taken for suitable alignment of container and setting of dummy block. Breakdowns occur due to the use of equipments like conventional container, die, dummy block which directly implies on less recovery. By upkeeping the equipments, plant performance will increase and higher productivity can be achieved. By adapting maintenance tools Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) tools we can improve the plant performance considerably. TPM tools such as Kaizen and Why-Why analysis are adopted here to improve the plant performance. This work is envisaged to analyze the breakdowns, their causes and actions to be taken and thereby study their effect
