Extrusion based enclosures offer sizing flexibility for applications that don't fit standard enclosures, and are particularly well-suited to electronic, data & electrical applications. Aside from aluminum’s strength and light weight, it can be easily joined by fusion and resistant welding, soldering, brazing, riveting, bolting and adhesive bonding. It is extremely malleable, can be manufactured in a limitless number of shapes, and is less costly than die-cast and fabricated enclosures. Aluminum also has a high mechanical loading capacity, is corrosion-resistant and offers excellent shielding properties, providing a high level of protection.

Hydro's nationwide network of facilities enables us to produce all shapes, sizes, alloys and tempers, by both direct and indirect extrusion, to meet the needs of our customers in the electronics, information technology, transportation, food service, telecommunications, and medical instrumentation industries, as well as any number of other consumer and industrial markets. Extruded aluminum enclosures fulfill rugged housing requirements and are ideal for a wide range of hand-held, wireless, desktop or wall-mounted devices.

Extrusions can be cut to custom lengths to fit your custom design specifications for everything from small enclosures to large cabinet racks. Profiles can be fully customized with guide slots for PC boards. They can be assembled with dust-tight and watertight lids, with and without gaskets, and offer a variety of mounting options. Profiles can be attached to accommodate brackets, straps and other mechanisms without further machining. Enclosures can also incorporate exterior heat sinks and can be painted or finished as desired.

Hydro Extrusion offers a complete range of profile sizes, in a wide variety of alloys and tempers to meet a wide range of applications. We employ the latest technology for the design and manufacture of extrusion tooling, including CAD/CAM design, and can provide everything you need to go from drawing board to finished product.

Our facilities are certified to ISO 9001:2008 and feature in-house die-making facilities and in-house testing capability for quality assurance. We also provide advanced facilities for painting (including our high speed vertical powder-coating line), anodizing and special coatings. Our complete fabricating services include precision cutting to semi-finished and fully finished parts and assemblies that meet AAMA Specifications and CSI Codes.

Hydro Extrusion offers a complete range of standard and custom aluminum enclosure extrusions. Our vast resources and unprecedented technical expertise enable us to provide the industry’s most comprehensive product line. From custom extrusions that require basic procedures (such as precision cutting, drilling, tapping or punching) to fully finished components and assemblies, Hydro offers full capabilities for fabricated components - a complete solution that’s ready to ship or insert into your production line.
