There are lots of ways to transform raw aluminum into a wide variety of shapes, sizes and products. Consumers and various industries rely on custom aluminum products each and every day, and they are in great demand. However, the best way to create products with raw aluminum is through the use of custom extrusion dies. The process of extrusion makes the aluminum and aluminum alloys even stronger and more durable than in its initial state. It is also possible to prevent corrosion through design, increasing aluminum’s natural ability to resist rust and corrosion, increasing the longevity of custom aluminum products. Working with a one stop shop fabrication, extrusion and design service can provide you with unique opportunities to create truly custom results.
How Aluminum is Used
You might be surprised to discover all of the industries that rely on custom aluminum products that are created through the use of standard and custom extrusion dies. When you think about all the ways that you can improve upon the material and the function of each part or product, including being able to prevent corrosion through design, it is no wonder that aluminum is now being used in just about every major consumer and industrial market. The advantages of choosing aluminum as your material of choice, as well as selecting the best one stop shop fabrication facility, can help you to create finished products that will meet or exceed the expectations and needs of your target demographic.
Some of the industries that rely on custom aluminum extrusion for parts, products and pieces, include:
- transportation – automotive and trucking
- marine – boats, decking and safety
- aerospace – satellites and space shuttles
- mass transit – bridge decking, construction and safety
- consumer – electronics, telecommunications and home products
- energy – solar, renewable energy and electrical
Benefits of Choosing Aluminum
Compared to other materials, aluminum and aluminum alloy is very cost-effective. It is the number one most recycled metal on the planet and, as a result, is readily available. When recycled, aluminum is 100 percent recyclable, which means that nothing gets lost of changed during the process required to melt down aluminum and pour it into aluminum billets, which is how extrusion companies receive their materials from suppliers. Our one stop shop fabrication facility cuts the billets to size to reduce waste during the extrusion process with both our standard and custom extrusion dies. The custom aluminum products that we create for our clients, maximize all of the inherent qualities of aluminum, including malleability, strength, durability, natural resistance to corrosion, natural conductor of heat and energy, as well as many other important benefits.
Compared to other extrusion companies, Silver City Aluminum has the unique ability to handle your aluminum extrusion orders from the initial design and development phase all the way to shipping and delivery, without your order ever leaving our facility.
