This study considers Technical and economic viability of an extrusion plant depends on the minimization of defects that lead to product rejection. Attempts at improvement of extrusion quality and productivity thus translate straightaway into an analysis of product defects. Aluminum extrusion is most widely and preferable metal forming process done in industries. There also problem of different kind of defects generated during extrusion. Every time practical trial and error experiments are time consuming, costly and not validated to find effects of changing various parameters to increase productivity and reduce defects. In this research work simulation of direct extrusion of Aluminum alloy (6063) in the form of round circular billet to round circular solid profile is done. Analysis was based on Taguchi’s L9 orthogonal array. The simulation software Hyperxtrude, which is customized software for various extrusion analyses, is used for analysis. Also analytical calculation is generated to compare both analytical and simulation results. Both results are closely matched.
