Our biggest extrusion press, which is located in Lichtervelde, offers a press force of 8200 tons, enabling tighter tolerances as well as simplified design work, production processes and assembly time.
A press force of 8200 tons means that the aluminium profiles can reach
A high pressing force gives you tighter tolerances, which simplifies your design work, production process and assembly time. Not to mention that you can achieve a high level of surface quality and improve your end product.
Big profiles offer big advantages for varied applications. As a substitution of steel, big aluminium profiles are not only much lighter, but an application based on aluminium will also be able to realize the same strength. Accordingly, the weight of the whole construction will be reduced and the manufacture of assemblies simplified.

Most of our profiles are customer-specific, because there is no standard solution for a specific problem. But not every problem is so complex that only specially designed shapes bring the desired advantage.
In our standard-catalog you will find our most common standard profiles that are available to you.
