A lot of business owners mistakenly believe that custom extrusion dies will cost them more than modifying a standard extrusion die to suit their needs. While it is true that the development of custom aluminum profiles will be a significantly larger investment upfront, once the design is completed, manufacturers reap the benefits of custom aluminum extrusion going forward. The cost and time required to modify the standard extrusion die can be much more than most people realize, ultimately creating an ineffective solution that will be even more costly compared to the return on investment that comes from designing a custom shape. Whether you need aluminum parts, products, or components for your industry, Silver City Aluminum can help you to maximize the return on your investment with our top quality services and opportunities.
Custom Aluminum Extrusion Saves Time
When you think about all of the steps required to modify standard extrusion die parts to suit the needs of a particular project, it all adds up to a lot of time. Depending on the nature of your project, these delays could cause you to be late on fulfilling orders, put you behind your competitors, or even result in missing out on a unique opportunity. In these examples, it is easy to see why they say that time is money. Unnecessary delays spent modifying a part that could have been completed through the use of custom aluminum profiles will make your production inefficient and, in many cases, ineffective to meet the demands of your market.
In addition to our ability to create custom extrusion dies that will help you to reduce production time, Silver City Aluminum also has some of the fastest lead times in the business. We take pride in the fact that our standard lead time to get finished custom aluminum products delivered to our clients via our fleet of trucks is approximately three to four weeks maximum. The industry standard is between 30-45 days or more from the time that the order is placed until the day that it is delivered to the client. We can also do special orders for our clients in an emergency, producing custom aluminum profiles and delivering them within three days to a week in a pinch. This is a special favor that we do for our clients and is not something we can do on a regular basis.
Custom Aluminum Extrusion Saves Money
Outside of the proven concept, that time is money; there are other ways that using custom extrusion dies instead of modifying standard extrusion die products will save you money. Custom manufacturing helps to improve the cost-effectiveness of any project, eliminating extra steps, specialized fabrication services, and ensuring that all of the parts and components work properly together from the very beginning. When you work with our team of engineers and technicians to create custom aluminum profiles, you are in a better position to take advantage of all the benefits of custom aluminum extrusion.
While we do offer services in-house for any additional fabrication, secondary operations, and finishing that you might need to meet the demands of your project, many steps can be saved by designing the custom extrusion dies to create the exact shape and size that you need. The more our team understands what each client needs, how and where the finished piece will be used and the unique requirements of the industry, the easier it will be to create results that exceed your expectations and allow you to manufacture a superior product.
Custom Aluminum Improves Quality Control
Quality is our primary focus at Silver City Aluminum. A quality product can further increase the cost-effectiveness for the entire project, providing a more significant return on investment for our client and the end-user. As a developer and manufacturer of custom aluminum profiles, we have the unique ability to be more agile, consistent, and responsive in every phase of the process to deliver high-quality results. All of the components in our extrusion system are state-of-the-art and top-of-the-line. Each piece is fully integrated and automated through the use of PLC control technology. These advances help us to communicate with our machines via the Internet from any location in the world.
We use these features to closely monitor the function of each machine, supervising the rate of speed, extrusion recipe, and all other variables for consistent and dependable quality control.
