• Brass Extrusion Mill

    Jakap focused on backwards integration by setting up its own Brass Extrusion mill with the intention of reducing lead times and having better control over quality.


    Capability

    Our extrusion mill has an installed production capacity of over 250 tonnes per month.


    We have

    • Two induction furnaces of half a ton capacity each.
    • A 600 ton extrusion press.
    • Annealing capability in order to meet increasing customer requirements of stress relieving and full annealing.
    • And ancillary equipment such as draw benches and straightening machines.

    We manufacture standard shapes such as round, square and hex in sizes ranging from 2.5 mm to 91mm. In addition to the standard shapes, we also manufacture specialized section profiles, flats and hollows as per customer requirements.


    We process a variety of grades including, but not limited to CZ121, C36000, CuZn38Pb2, C-3602 and CW602N. We also process non-standard grades of Copper alloys as per customer requirements.


    Our in-house laboratory has the capability of measuring

    • Ultimate Tensile Strength
    • Hardness
    • Yield Stress
    • Chemical composition

    Our quality systems ensure that there is full traceability of rods from input into the furnace up-to final dispatch of finished components.
