Custom Aluminum Products: Fabrication and Finishing Options

There are many advantages to working with a one-stop-shop for creating custom aluminum products. Silver City Aluminum offers standard and custom aluminum extrusion design, along with post extrusion operations, sawing and deburring, or aluminum surface treatments, depending on the needs of the client. We take pride in our ability to offer so many services to our clients and maintain all of these options at our Massachusetts facility to ensure maximum quality control. Our team supervises the creation of all extrusion orders from beginning to end, making sure that the highest quality standards are adhered to every step of the way.

We are happy to answer any questions and assist you in placing your order.

CNC Fabrication Services

Our team has the ability to fabricate pieces up to 30-feet in length. We process them in our high-speed Emmegi CNC machines, which feature a 4+1 controlled axis to allow the spindle to be continuously controlled in the range of 0-180 degrees. We also have angle machining heads, which can be used for machining the five faces of a processed part. Our high-speed equipment can be used to machine, drill, and tap a part at extremely tight tolerances, delivering consistent and reliable results for application perfection. Our short part capabilities can handle orders as small as one-quarter of an inch in our high-speed Fanuc Robo Drill units. These particular machines operate off of a 3-axis high-speed system, which can be used to machine parts to extremely tight tolerances for consistent results.

Other Fabrication Options

In addition to CNC machining for our clients, we also offer a wide range of other services to deliver quality custom aluminum products. Post extrusion operations, such as deburring, heli-coiling, punching, and mitering, can all be done in-house at our one-stop-shop facility. Sawing and deburring are always done together to ensure quality results. Our team has become masters in the creation of custom pneumatic and hydraulic punches. We can create custom punches for low and high-volume jobs, providing the highest standard of quality work and repeatable consistency. We utilize two B&O state-of-the-art precision saws for finish cutting our extrusions and have the ability to miter parts in ranges from 22.5 to 135 degrees and at lengths of up to 19-feet, 8-inches maximum.

Aluminum Surface Treatments

When it comes to finishing services for our customers, we continue to maintain high standards of quality. Our paint line at Silver City Aluminum runs nearly non-stop, and we have developed techniques that allow us to achieve a consistent color application and top-rated adhesion to meet the requirements of every industry we serve. Our pre-treat finish goes above and beyond the industry standard, including a four-stage service with an etch, clean wash, neutralizing wash, and standard pre-wash for long-lasting results. We apply our paint at approximately 2ml’s wet in thickness, constantly monitoring and checking the process by our staff to ensure the best possible results for consistent color application.

We work with several different powder coaters and anodizers so we can offer our clients a finish that will meet their desired look and function in the best lead-time imaginable. Powder-coating and anodizing can be provided in a wide range of colors and textures, including black, white, clear, and an unlimited selection of colors. For more information on any of our aluminum surface treatments, make sure to speak with one of our technicians. We can answer any questions you might have about fabrication and finishing for our custom aluminum products and help you choose the options that are best for your needs and requirements.
