Aluminum Extrusion Companies
Hydro Extrusion, part of aluminum company Norsk Hydro, provides complete customer solutions for the construction, automotive, aluminum bridge decking, commercial transportation and distribution industries, both industrial and consumer.
We offer decades of experience as one of the world’s largest aluminum extrusion companies, and our complete range of standard and custom shapes enjoys heavy application in the mass transit and solar and renewable energy markets.
Some refer to aluminum as the metal of the future; and with good reason. It is lightweight (about 1/3 the weight of steel), strong, extremely malleable, does not rust or corrode, can be welded, riveted, bonded and bolted, is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity (and only half as heavy as copper), is non-magnetic, can be finished in many different ways to enhance its appearance (painting, anodizing, coating) or to imitate steel, iron or wood, and it can be recycled endlessly without deteriorating.
Hydro Extrusion's nationwide network of 23 locations and 65 presses provides exceptional capabilities in extruded aluminum profile shapes, sizes, alloys and tempers, including both direct and indirect extrusion methods. Our facilities are certified to ISO 9001:2008 and feature in-house die-making facilities to serve your custom extrusion needs. Because our fabrication facilities are fully integrated with our extrusion operations, you can sequence 100% usable net weight parts directly into a production line.
We are proud to offer a comprehensive selection of aluminum rod, bar, and pipe, along with structural angles, C-channels, U-channels, tees, zees, I-beams and H-beams, through our ACC-U-LINE™ product line. Our manufacturing capabilities allow us to produce some of the largest Outside Diameter (OD) sizes, up to 22.5” circle size, and the highest precision tolerances in the industry. We also employ the latest technology for the design and manufacture of extrusion tooling, including CAD/CAM design, to ensure that our solutions exceed your expectations.
Hydro provides complete capabilities in CNC machining, precision cutting, punching, bending, forming, deburring, beveling/chamfering and conventional and friction stir welding. We can also offer cost savings and shorter product cycle times with additional value-added services, such as:
- Caustic etching and Hydro Extrusion Select acid etching
- Clear and two-step anodizing
- Brite Dip to 18’
- Assembly, packaging and delivery
From custom aluminum extrusions that require basic procedures (such as precision cutting, drilling, tapping or punching) to fully finished components and assemblies, Hydro is also pleased to offer full capabilities for fabricated components - a complete solution that’s ready to ship or insert into a production line.
As one of the world’s premier aluminum extrusion companies, Hydro Extrusion offers an unsurpassed variety of choices. Our expansive operations open up a universe of opportunities for our customers, providing access to the industry’s broadest product capacity.
