Aluminum Extrusions Manufacturer in Alabama
Hydro Extrusion is the world leader in soft alloy aluminum extrusions. We encourage you to consider us as you evaluate manufacturers that can provide advanced solutions for your Alabama business. We offer a level of quality that is unsurpassed in the industry.
Aluminum alloy is easy to work with and can produce an unlimited variety of unique profiles that are not possible with other metals. But choosing the appropriate alloy for your application is critical.
The extrusion process produces solid, semi-hollow and hollow shapes with dimensional accuracy and excellent surface quality. The size of the press determines how large of an extrusion can be produced, so extruded parts can range in size from one millimeter to several feet long. Color, texture and luster of extrusions can be altered in a variety of ways, including anodizing, painting and powder coating. This makes extrusion profiles indispensible in virtually all commercial, industrial and consumer markets.
Hydro Extrusion uses both 6xxx series aluminum alloys and select proprietary alloys in the 1000, 2000, 3000, 5000, and 7000 series, in standard and special tempers, to satisfy our customers’ most complex size and shape requirements.
We are also the only soft alloy extruder in North America with indirect press technology. The indirect extrusion process allows for a more consistent grain structure and better dimensional tolerances, improving the machinability and finishing of our rod and bar products and providing our customers with increased control capabilities and greater efficiency.
