You might not realize it, but extruded aluminum consumer goods are all around you every day. Metal frames made from standard and custom aluminum dies are used to create everything from bicycle racks to metal ladders. The popularity of lightweight aluminum doors and windows has increased over the years, as they have proven to be much more sturdy and durable than previously thought. Framing for everything from shelving to backyard barbecue grills can be made from aluminum extrusion solutions.
It is critical for manufacturers to work with a team of knowledgeable and experienced technicians to get the best results. Silver City Aluminum provides one stop shop fabrication and extrusion to deliver better quality control every step of the way. We do everything in-house at our Southeastern Massachusetts facility, working with our clients from the design phase all the way through to delivery in our trucks. Quality assurance is very important to us – and to our clients, so we do everything we can to either meet or exceed their expectations in the finished products that we deliver.
Many Industries Use Aluminum Extrusion
Aluminum consumer goods isn’t even the most extensive industry that relies on aluminum extrusion solutions. The transportation industry, which includes consumer vehicles and commercial trucking, uses standard and custom extrusion dies to create quality parts and components for manufacturing. Our one stop shop fabrication facility also provides services to the aerospace, military, defense, HVAC, construction, and home improvement industries. So while it might not be obvious to the untrained eye, aluminum consumer goods, products, parts, and components are everywhere.
Our team is proud to provide professional services to our clients. The engineers and technicians at Silver City Aluminum work hand in hand with our customers to ensure that their needs are sufficiently met in the design of our custom extrusion dies. We use only the top-rated aluminum alloys to create the products and parts that we make, ensuring long-lasting strength, durability, resistance to corrosion, and other benefits associated with using aluminum materials. Computers, electronics, and even the solar panel industry rely heavily on aluminum extrusion solutions for their continued success.
Why Choose Aluminum?
Each year, more and more manufacturers, engineers, designers, and consumers are choosing aluminum materials for the products that they create, sell, and use the most. There are many benefits associated with using aluminum. The most common is the high strength to weight ratio that aluminum enjoys. The weight of aluminum is approximately one-third the weight of steel. The natural resistance to corrosion is also beneficial in many applications, providing a finished product that will continue to look and perform like-new for many years to come, regardless of the environment. Additional finishing options, such as painting, powder-coating, and anodizing, can provide extra protection for heavy use or use within highly corrosive or abrasive areas.
Aluminum is also very plentiful and highly recyclable, which makes it a very cost-effective choice. Because it can be recycled over and over without losing any of its beneficial properties, aluminum is also considered to be sustainable, making it eligible for eco-friendly projects, LEED certification, and achieving other objectives. Aluminum alloy is malleable and easy to use with aluminum extrusion solutions. Through the process of extrusion at our one stop shop fabrication facility, we can create shapes and finished products that can’t be produced with other metals or methods. Overall, the value, benefits, and advantages associated with using aluminum make it very attractive to many industries.
Advanced Aluminum Consumer Goods
Aluminum parts, components, shells, and other items are being used in the production of today’s advanced electronics, computers, and equipment. Aluminum consumer goods, such as tablets, laptops, flat screen televisions, monitors, and even smartphones are now all using a much higher amount of aluminum. They provide strong, durable backbones and inner workings for these devices, protecting them from damage during use, while also offering aesthetic appeal and unlimited options for finishing to create a desired color, texture, or sheen. Custom extrusion dies are used to create elements for these products that can be quickly and easily made according to the manufacturer’s unique specifications, creating valuable parts that don’t cost a lot to make, yet provide a lot of value.
