Producing aluminum extrusions is only part of the expanding Vitex Extrusion story. In addition to our new world-class extrusion line, we have been continually investing in high-speed machining centers designed to minimize total Takt time for hi-production, 3, 4 & 5 axis requirements. All our machining centers feature multi modes of operation which allow for parts to be loaded and set up in one cell while concurrently machining parts in the second cell.
Vitex Extrusion also provides “long bed” 3, 4, & 5 axis machining. This not commonly available in-house capability is a major competitive advantage to our customers whose products require large scale machined components. Our long bed machining capabilities enable aluminum profile sections up to 19 feet in length to be processed in a single operation.
Complimenting our expanding machining capabilities is continuous investments into latest technology hi-production precision aluminum saws, dual head miter saws and lineal and vibratory de-burring systems.

World Class Manufacturing – Franklin, NH
Our new 2,750 ton, state-of-the-art front-loading aluminum extrusion press incorporates the latest industry technologies. The design and manufacture of the new production line was a collaboration of press maker PRESEZZI Extrusion and Granco Clark Systems, who supplied the furnace, hot saw and all back-end handling system components. Working under a 24-7 schedule, the project team successfully completed the installation in seventy seven days, with the pushing of the press line’s first billet on November 17, 2011. A full production shift was initiated on December 17, 2011. A second production shift was added on January 9, 2012. We are now running around the clock and remain poised to meet the most demanding order timelines.
