•    Description:  Predicting the location of charge welds that comprise the front-end defect portion of an extrudate in porthole extrusion dies is one of the key elements of controlling recovery rates in extrusion plants. Extruders have employed time-consuming laboratory tests on cut-off front-end sections of extrusions when new dies are introduced into production. This article shows how extruders can minimize the front-end defect in aluminum porthole extrusions by utilizing finite element analysis (FEA) to design their dies to reduce scrap from the front-end defect without compromising overall press productivity.
