Abstract : The patent relates to a cup-shaped blank extruded through a die onto a cylindrical non-collapsible mandrel having an external surface pattern counter to a desired internal embossment.

The application of hydrostatic pressure to the exterior of the blank during the extruding operation is disclosed.
