While there are a great many products and tools available on the market that are used today to streamline the work done across the marine industry, businesses continue to bring forth innovations that can be used to improve efficiency and effectiveness across the board. Aluminum fabrication shops can help designers to bring their ideas to life; however, custom aluminum extrusion can offer many advantages that are not available through other methods of manufacturing. Aluminum extrusion profiles can be used to manufacture products that are designed to reduce corrosion and rust while increasing durability and longevity to ensure top quality results. The New England marine industry relies heavily on aluminum extrusion design for commercial and consumer grade parts, products, and equipment.
How to Design Custom Aluminum Extrusion
Our entire team at Silver City Aluminum is dedicated to providing the absolute best standards of quality control and service to every client we serve. Our goal is to deliver superior custom aluminum products designed to exceed expectations. Our focus is kept on the application of the product itself. This helps us to consider all specifics of the intended end use to provide quality results. Through our many years of experience working with the New England marine industry, as well as other industries and areas of development, we have discovered that the more we can get involved in the design process from the very beginning, the more we are able to help our clients create a finished design that will meet their specifications and requirements.
While we do a lot of business in the Massachusetts area, we also ship our aluminum extrusion profiles to clients all over the world. In most cases, we require only a 2D representation of the custom shape that our customers want us to create with a custom aluminum extrusion. However, for best results, a 3D program, such as CAD or computer-assisted design, is preferred. This assures a three-dimensional example of the custom shape so our engineers and technicians can get it right. For best results, speak with one of our engineers direct to ask any questions that you might have about the proper format before placing an order.
What to Expect
Silver City Aluminum can do almost any shape that is within a seven-inch diameter circle size. Our standard aluminum tolerances are available via our website in a PowerPoint presentation for your convenience. However, if you have any questions or would rather work with one of our engineers in the development of your project, make sure to contact us right away. We can help you with specific solutions, such as how to design screw slots or avoid surface defects. We can assist in the selection of the perfect aluminum alloy based on your needs and specifications. Our many years of experience working with clients in the New England marine industry has helped us to become a valuable asset to our customers, both existing and new. Whether your goal is to reduce costs through extrusion or if you would like to cut back on the amount of assembly or secondary operations required for production, our team can help.
We will walk you through every step of the process and familiarize you with the services available at our one-stop aluminum fabrication shops. Not only do we offer custom design for aluminum extrusion profiles, but we also offer standard shape manufacturing, fabrication, and special operations, finishing solutions, and much more. We take pride in being able to offer all of the services that our customers require under one roof. Not only does this help us to improve our lead times, but it also provides opportunities for increased quality assurance every step of the way. Instead of sending out your parts and products to third-party vendors for painting or galvanizing, we do it all in-house. Ask about our options for everything from CNC fabrication and custom services to powder-coating and anodizing designed to exceed industry requirements.
Incredible Lead Times
We are very proud of our ability to deliver completed projects to our customers in a fraction of the time that other custom aluminum extrusion manufacturers offer to the New England marine industry. Our average lead time is just three to four weeks maximum from the day that we receive your order to the day that it ships from our facility. However, there are certain jobs that include intensive fabrication and additional services that may take slightly longer, depending on the specifications of the order. We are very proud of our lead times – compared to other manufacturers in the same business, they are simply outstanding! Currently, the industry standard is between one month to one-and-a-half months from the date that the order is placed until the day that it is delivered to the client.
In addition to our ability to offer quick turnarounds for standard orders, we can also do special orders for our clients who are in urgent need of materials in an emergency. Our team can produce orders and deliver them between three days and one week, if necessary. This is only in the case of an emergency and as a special favor to our clients. We go above and beyond to ensure satisfaction to help our customers have the parts, products, and materials that they need to be successful. Our team of highly trained and experienced professionals can create parts for our customers that are designed to exceed expectations.
