Aluminum extrusion profiles are various components made of low-cost malleable aluminum alloy that has been forced through a die. The extensive variety of possible profiles that can be produced make aluminum extrusion profiles extremely useful in the manufacture of countless products on the market today.
Due to the fact that aluminum alloy is so easy to work with, extrusions can be created in many unique shapes often not possible with other metals. It’s also very easy to create customized aluminum extrusion profiles, due to its ease of production, enabling sometimes intricate extrusion templates to create non-standard shapes of all kinds when needed.
Aluminum extrusion profiles are a part of an incredible number of manufactured products and a wide assortment of construction projects both commercial and industrial. They are integral to lightweight, strong and corrosion-resistant parts required for glass work, windows and doors, heat sinks, mechanical parts, framing and for parts used in a broad variety of engines, electronic motors and industrial equipment and robotics – even the manufacture of heavy equipment, trucks and railroad cars.
Aluminum extrusion profiles are also important in the production of many different rods, pipes, channels and conduit in a wide range of sizes utilized by the construction, electronics and manufacturing industries.
