Aluminum Extrusion Profiles

Aluminum extrusion profiles are used for a wide range of purposes in many industries around the world. Aluminum is a unique material for many reasons. It is easy to work with and customize according to your personal projects and requirements. Aluminum is strong, stable, and recyclable, which is especially important in this age of environmental awareness.

Aluminum Extrusion Profiles: How They Are Made

There are several key steps in the aluminum extrusion process. First, the shape of the forming die is chosen. It can be either a standard one or a one designed particularly for this order. After the shape is picked and ready, it is time to preheat a cylindrical aluminum billet. The temperature depends on the type of extrusion, and it can be cold, warm, or hot. The average temperature for the extrusion process is about 480ºC.

Later on, it is time to apply pressure to the billet using a ram to push it through the die. As a result, you get an elongated piece of aluminum shaped as the die opening. It is then cooled down at room temperature and moved to the stretcher to be further straightened and hardened.

Next comes the stage of cutting the long product into pieces of the required length. The aluminum extrusion profiles are then put through an aging oven. This is where the material gets even stronger. At the end, it is time to add finishing touches, such as paint the profiles or work on the surface’s texture and brightness.

Types and Ways to Use Aluminum Extrusion Profiles

There is a vast variety of aluminum extrusion profile types that can be created. You can get a required number of void spaces to make the final construction more lightweight. There are multiple shapes to choose from: triangular, square, rectangular, round tubes, beams, bars, tees, angles and many more.

Aluminum extrusion profiles are often used in all kinds of manufacturing and processing industries. As they are strong yet lightweight, they can be built into different configurations. In other cases, these profiles can be used to reduce the weight of the final products. Aluminum profiles are employed as parts of frames in such products as windows, office walls, bikes, and cars. As there are more advanced aluminum alloys and surface coating techniques developed, the number of ways to use aluminum extrusion profiles grows.

Advantages of Aluminum Extrusion Profiles

There is a collection of standard dies and shapes to make aluminum profiles. However, the possibilities are almost unlimited. You can reach a company with a custom project and place an order for custom-shape profiles that meet your requirements. Aluminum billets can be shaped into a variety of forms without requiring a lot of energy for the forming process. The aluminum extrusion process has a relatively low energy footprint, which means there are low tooling and manufacturing costs. Among all metals, aluminum demonstrates an impressive strength to weight ratio that makes it an excellent choice for industrial applications.
