The Advantage of Designing Custom Aluminum Extrusion Profiles

Custom Extrusion for Auto IndustryCustom aluminum products have changed the way that many companies do business. They allow them to get the parts that they need to help innovate and advance the products, equipment, tools and materials that they provide to their customers. Silver City Aluminum specializes in designing and engineering custom profiles to create viable industry solutions for our clients all over the world. Through our many years of working to provide custom aluminum products for essential industries, including trucking, automotive, marine, lighting and construction, we have gained invaluable insight into the needs and requirements of our clients. Our experience helps us to help our clients by giving us a jump-start on the things that they need to achieve their goals.

There are many advantages associated with choosing to extrude aluminum alloys into custom shapes. Elimination of some secondary options to reduce lead time is just one of the benefits associated with creating custom aluminum extrusion shapes. While it may require a bit more investment upfront to design the profile according to your needs, it will ultimately save time and money in the long run, by reducing the amount of extra machining and deburring required to get the parts just right.

Many Industries Depend on Custom Aluminum Extrusion
Once you start to examine all of the industries that use custom aluminum products, you may be surprised. While there are many uses for standard shapes in all of these industries as well, there are just too many benefits associated with using custom aluminum extrusion to ignore. For example, the marine industry, which relies on us to extrude aluminum alloys into standard shapes for structural materials, boat rails, decking and docks, also relies on Silver City Aluminum to create custom solutions for boat rails used on sailboats and power boats, as well as other custom product designs.

Through the use of custom profiles, we are able to deliver parts that feature intricate designs and specialty applications. While many of these custom dies are able to reduce the amount of secondary operations required to finish the parts, we also have the ability to drill holes and create other elements to meet the requirements of our clients. Our work with the lighting industry is another great example. We extrude standard shapes for track lighting and LED lighting, however we also make custom tracks for specialty lighting features that we are able to tailor to the client’s specific requests.

Custom aluminum extrusion allows us to engineer and produce a truly custom product that exactly conforms to the specific needs of our clients. Our custom industry solutions provide our clients with an edge over their competitors by helping them to get the custom aluminum products they need to take their designs to the next level. Because we do everything in-house at our one stop shop, including secondary operations and finishing, we have a much faster lead time than most others in the business. All of the components in our extrusion system are fully integrated, fully automated – top of the line. Quality control is our number one focus, which is why we are able to deliver a final product that always meets or exceeds the expectations of our clients.
