DirectExtrusion
A solid ram drives the entire billet to and through a stationary die and must provide additional power to overcome the frictional resistance between the surface of the moving billet and the confining chamber.

IndirectExtrusion
A hollow ram drives the die back through a stationary, confined billet.

Since no relative motion, friction between the billet and the chamber is eliminated.
